Returning to the Skies in 2020
Chris’s SZD Cobra 17
Chris’s build made another appearance at our monthly meeting in March along with several other projects. Its looking awesome Chris.
Gordon’s Christmas Raffle Prize
Gordon’s Fun Cub XL made its debut at our March Club meeting and generated a lot of interest and some head scratching with trying to program the flaps function on the transmitter.
John’s Glider Build
A 5mtr K7? are you looking forward to winter already John?
A build progress update from John;
Adding 0.4mm ply capping to the wing ribs. Ribs and caps are coated with PVA white wood glue, left for 20 to 30 mins then ironed on, instant grab! Used this method to apply the sheeting to the D box areas.
Ribs with caps glued on and very stiff even before the other side is capped. Much more work building the wings than I imagined!
“Looking good and worth the effort John – Robert”
Robert’s Twin Otter Build
This build is definitely a marathon and not a sprint but that is what I enjoy. New photos show that the fuselage, fin and stab are making good progress. The bottom 1/16th sheeting has been sprayed, rolled into position and left to dry prior to gluing. Also making good use of my new Bosch laser gauge from Trago to check for bananas and twists. I just could not get alignment due to an inaccurate square.
