Savage


Another project I've been working on.

Fin toolpaths are done, stock is ready. I will start the machining tomorrow and post some pictures.

I made a prototype wing to test my own airfoil, I used a Stab Elite Fuse to get this project going.

Here's some video of the maiden Ds flight and an early tuning session on the front.

Cool some more Stab competition? Nice work Jonathan. Is there enough room for a gyro?

Dang I want a CNC machine! Any details on yours?

There's plenty of room for a gyro.

The CNC I have is only 900mm x 600mm and would be in the region of 4K to buy.

Hey Gaz, a big machine like you have would be just awesome! I was used to big machines in the past and have just bought a small lathe/ mill. At least now i can make some stuff, even if i have to go really slow and carefully.

Thanks Graham,

I designed this (picture attached) to take on the Stab.
I may pass the moulds round to those who want to make one.
