Here's an internal fuse shot showing the motor mounting post. I used the plastic stuff with a strip of carbon for strength.

Time for the electrics now. That'll have to wait for tommorrow, 2 very late nights in a row, i'm shagged. Here's one more shot showing the tail feathers fitted and the prop on. You may notice the v-stab is kinda large, that's been done to make it more effective, I may reduce it's size as i'm using ailerons. Not long now.

Hehe, you have to be kidding! The guys over at SPAD have been around far longer...

I prefer the finesse approach to twinwall modelling you're showing. I have to take my hat off to you for the effort you've put into that.

I hope it works out as tough as it looks. Your work on the wing section is particularly impressive - I've tried some simple jedelskis with limited success but yours is the first time I've seen a ribs and rolling approach - looks awesome. Any ideas on colouring? We've started using tape exclusively but of course on black it mightn't work quite as well as on white.

Good luck with the flights and can't wait to see more photos.

Where do you find this on the web?

I'll be applying vinyl decls directly to the coreflute. Checkout the decal kit Speedy( the designer ) sent to me, what a bloody legend.

It is a direct copy off the RBC kits mount, hope they didn't have a copyright on it :O)

Spad started in 1998...if I remember correctly, while building the first Spad website (also 1998) the first link we found and added to the site was to Moogee's site, I could be wrong...but Moogee may have come before Spads...and one things for sure, they have sure inspired a lot of Spadders

BTW, I've been following this thread and this is an incredable project!

Dear All,

For those who are interested in seeing twinwall planes in addition to Climax's beautiful Camel please have a look in the 'product announcements' section. We started a new thread called 'there's a new mugi on the horizon' which was moved to that section. There's are some pics of 2 development planes we've been working on - A Hurricane & a ME109. Please ignore the mugshot courtesy of Tim Hooper..

Regards,

P.

BTW Climax,

I'd be interested to hear how much your Camel weigh all up. Including motor, servos (2?), receiver and battery.

Love the decals... we're seeing green...

Back to the build


Here's a photo of how i've connected the wing servo's, I have put a servo on each wing for the ailerons, i'll be able to have flaperons this way and cause i've got 'rons on both top and bottom wings 1 x 6gram servo wouldn't cut it. Note the carbon rod connecting linkages using heat shrink as the hinge.
