Everything that I have read says that it is not possible to bend CF with any success. Might possibly try CF tubes with piano wire bends epoxied in.

Well I'll try using a soldering iron or wood burner iron to soften the Epoxy 1st.
I'll test both ROD and very small Tubing.

My 1st tubing attempt seemed to work but "FELT" a bit crunchy as it bent.
Needed more heat I believe.

I flew a kite into some wires once and it crossed the top and next wire down.
It exploded in a bright flash but when I got it down there were CF tubes
that still had epoxy on their ends but the middle was just the CF Strands.
CLEAN new Lines and a DRY field probably kept me form being killed !
The kite had lots of Melted fabric and was a ToTal LOSS !

RET flight


Thanks for the answer Bob/Jürgen About RET flight, the question did came up because I would remove the wing for transportation reasons.
I now build the wing with single aileron and I can remove the wing on one Side from the fus.
(I flow other planes with single aileron and they flow Well )

AFAIK, epoxy is not a thermoplast. It will burn eventually, but never melt.

I know that the plans are ready.
But you will have to wait until VTH will publish the new edition of the FMT (magazin)
There you will also find the instruction and the pictures of the the build of the floats.
Again with online plans and pictures

Building "Lisa" now, thanks sharing the plans! I'm using the same motor and battery, was wondering what size prop to use?

Just finished my Lisa tonight. I made it out of Model Plane Foam which is 5.6 mm thick. It was a bit tricky making it all work especially in the cockpit area. Some careful trimming was required. I am hoping to fly it Thursday at an indoor fly and will give a report. Here are my build specs.
All up weight with 370 mah lipo is 177grams
7x3.5 prop
Turnigy Plush 10amp ESC
HURC 300 1600kv brushless outrunner
Orange 4ch micro rx
4 3.7 gram servos

arcaknob,

very nice build, looks good and the AUW will be ok.
Hope you are satisfied with 7x3.5 prop. I tryed and changed to a APC 7x5 Slowfly,
as sugested in the plans. But this was on the 2211-1700, maybe your motor can handle this prop better. I´m looking forward to your first flights.


svtflyer, for the prop see above


Jürgen
