Carbon


Hello BillO I'm using a 2/2 twill 3k, I believe it's 4.7 oz cloth!! I use a 1.6 glass veil cloth on top of the carbon to make the bubbles and cloth print go away!! That's the hope anyway lol!!! I'm getting better but have not met my standards for what I would like to achieve!! Still gaining experience and knowledge!! Every thing I do is a learning experience right now!! Patience and precision are key!! Thank you for your compliments!! Stay in touch & best regards

Mike,

Those look great from here! Maybe you are just hypercritical of your work and they will be an 11 on my scale

Looking forward to getting my grubby little hands on this sweetheart of a model

Getting close


This is the 3rd fuse out of the CNC machine and I'm almost satisfied enough with it to start cutting aluminum molds, and also a picture of the 3D printer with tail adaptors being made. Bladder molded fuselage is the goal here!

Looks good Mike.

I've found so much to do with my $200 3D printer, from servo trays, to bellcranks for twisty wings and flying stabs, to a stinger with a key to hold a removable T-tail.

I know some of these projects could have been done with other materials and tools, but as they say, if you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Nice job on the tail adapters. I don't know that I've seen one in place in your photos yet, have I?

That's cool Mike. I admire your talent, dreaming up a twisty wing that just looks right, and acquiring the skills to build it.

Adaptors


Hello Dave I believe I posted a picture of a adaptor on a fuse. It's a prototype so it's not been tested yet and we'll se how it works!! So far the adaptors are really light really strong and hopefully they fit the purpose perfectly!!

That a JW60 California Special,...

....that Neal built and named after an old Girlfriend.

Bill L cut them with a thinner airfoil for Frontside, which the DS crowd thought made it too squirrelly.
