Oh wow those sites are just so incredibly spectacular! Are both those videos of the same site? And you can't go there any more?? How terribly sad! And to see the Nyx triple carbon - man, that's a plane many of us wish to have, even today. Really talented flying - had me on the edge of my seat calling for my wife and friend to come and have a look! And nice long stalky grass on the backside for a safe backside landing. I hope you can get back up there one day. Thanks.

Awesome video. Japan in fall looks somewhat like the western US.

Great work as usual Sanukiudon.


How do you get to sand and contour your filled spar and balsa trailing edge channels without affecting the bottom surface of the wing section?

Do you protect the foam with tape? What tools do you use?

The procedure is

1.Insert moving surface core
2.One-sided bagging
3.Insertion of spar
4.Left side bagging

I adjust the moving surface core manually.
Rough sanding uses jig.
Final adjustment is embedded in the styrofoam and adjusted.
Epoxy coating on the styro beforehand makes the work easy.
(For the first time I used wood that is harder than balsa.)
The hardness of the surface of the styro exceeds the wood.

Thank you very much for your reply.

"Epoxy coating on the styro beforehand makes the work easy."

That is a great idea!

Hey Sanukiodon, in the picture of the stab mount saddle on top of the fin - is the wider one for your heavier version and the narrower one for your previous lighter version? Really beautiful work ... I love the clean pushrod tunnel too.

Your guess is correct!
The heavier version is wide.
Because my inexperience speed is targeted, it is making by speculation.
