Quote from: thermaled on August 07, 2012, 02:11:49 amShort kit A short kit consists of epoxy fiberglass fuselage with tail servo hatch cover and turtle deck. Blue foam cnc cut wing and stab cores. Fuselage is coloured resin so cloth weave shows through as slightly darker which I quite like the look of. Two pack paint would be ideal and is what most people use but it stinks my house and workshop out making it unusable and unhealthy in my circumstances, taped on wing lifts off the paint with the tape when painting a bare fuselage so have experimented with pigmented resins to colour the fuselage in the mould. Tapered wet seam layup so good and strong, seams will need a bit of wet sanding to remove last bit of flashing as there is only so much I can do for £75.00. Stab seat has a ply plate so easy to tap out a thread or fit threaded inserts. Lots of ways to finish the wings, thin ply, carbon, glass, can even substitute the blue foam for epp if using a hot iron on lam film is as technical as you want to get or want a real quick build, Im very flexible and open to options. Also prepared to vac bag the wing and stab with carbon, then cut out and hinge the flying surfaces and fit it all together for an additional £100.00
Quote from: wdeighton on August 07, 2012, 19:42:44 pmSo £75 For a Short Kit.And £175 for a Just add radio Kit.I like the Idea of this plane. I would rather pay the extra and get the wings finished. Just because it would speed up the build.I know you are capable of moulded wings, You going to give that a go?RK40 good choice of section.Have you seen the discussion on rcgroups in the speeds thread about incidence?What incidence is this set up for?what servos go in this beast?Will

Quote from: cambrad on August 09, 2012, 22:09:01 pmYep, time you got that D60 built G, or are you saving it for the windy season?
Quote from: thermaled on August 07, 2012, 20:51:44 pmA little more work than fitting gear will be needed, control horns, linkage and servo tray will need to be sourced or made up, hate fitting gear in planes so consequently am not that great at it, so would rather leave it up to the individual, and would be interested to see how others do their fit out, also keeps the cost down. Experimenting with wing moulds at the moment for a different project, It always looked a messy and complicated way of building wings to me but cant argue with the accuracy and finish, so have finally come round to the idea. Far too much work and expense to make just for myself though.Incidence is zero for wing to stab, did try shimming the stab a little to see if it made any differece but went back to zero. Just about 10mm thickness in the wing for the aileron servos, around 15mm clearance for servo and linkage in the tail. Mark
