Templates


I jumped on the wing templates first today cause they take the most concentration and tight effort

Speed building


For me that is

Templates shaped, wing core cut and trimmed for TE, peckered and bagged.

Cloth cut ready for epoxy.

5 layers - 1x1.7oz 2x5.79oz 2x8.5oz Twill weave.

Prolly no carbon fiber. TFLG says it's just for looks anyway

Mold sprayed 2nd time... drying

Still need to lay up fuse

Cool. Wish I could build half as fast!

I see what looks like lead shot? Is that under the canopy area, or over the wing?

Yep, I can't build half as fast either, I can build "half a$$ed" though.

Thanks, I was humpin'

I mixed up 10oz of shot and epoxy and dropped it in the wing saddle hole and smoothed it out as best as possible where it will attach and cure to the top of the wing area.

You can only do about 10oz in order to have the "ceiling clearance
for the elevator push rod .

I can't not do this if I expect any chance to keep up with the Amigo's Edges

LE and TE Sand Block


Best tool I have made. Oak wood long sanding block I screw down to my work table.

Made short work of the core ply edges.
