Aw man, that'll buff right out, and with the repairs it will have even more character.

That one was a painted APC prop. Slow flyer
http://www.apcprop.com/PhotoGallery....ctCode=LP10047

I used some tan spray paint, shot the whole thing first. Then I used a Brown Sharpy to put on the mahogany lines. Then shot it with a very thin coat of the tan again. After that was dry, I use a brushed on coat of yellow Tamiya CLEAR Acrylic paint as a varnish. I have a bottle of Orange Clear also, sometimes I mix them a bit for a nice amber tone. Super easy to do.

I had a real mahogany and bass wood laminated prop for a while, but I had a landing that rolled the plane into the grassy edge of a running track and it busted the wood prop. I need to make another, it was fun to build, and looked great!

I was shocked to see this thread hasn't been touched in so long!

Got a keychain vid camera for Christmas, here's the first vid from it.
In the cockpit of my SE5a.

Mt. Rainier in the distance.

Great video there. I finally did my original one in last summer. It was one of the best handling planes Ive had the pleasure to fly. Hopefully Ill have another one ready by the Spring. B

was assembling mine today I noticed that the top wing is a little more forward then the bottom. Looking down at it from the top you can see the top wing is little farther forward on the right side then the left of the bottom wing. If that makes sense. Probably good 1/4 inch is this problem ? I was thinking i could take wing off drill new mounting holes and that should move it back if i need to. Just wasnt sure if it was huge deal or not.
thanks for any input.

funny someone dug this thread up, I just flew mine today for the first time in 3 years. As LT Max Moga would say "it truly is a GREAT PLANE"

top wing should be slightly ahead, and do what you gotta do to fix it, I crashed mine once and fixed it during my fixing I encountered the same as you my wing was all crooked. Mine was the struts that go to the fuselage they are metal and I just bent them back.

One thing you might try - loosen up all the screws, the cabanes and outer struts, upper and lower, EVERYTHING. See if you can straighten the wing out with them loose. If you can, then you might get a friend to hold the wings while you tighten.

Just a thought. I'd sure hate to see someone re-drill if you don't need to.

Hisso


This is my Hisso version:


She's not nearly as detailed as some of the others, but she has lots of CF parts to save weight. Power is a Thrust PA 20, Quantum 30 ESC.
My Hisso still goes on dawn patrol almost every weekend.

Cheers!
