Have any of the carrier guys experimented with VGs yet?  I would be interested to know if it would significantly effect their slow speed flight.

I don't think the local guys has..  But I'm sure it'll be beneficial to some degree after seeing how it improved one of my plane's landing glide.

Maybe WenMacs aren't all bad.  But back in the day kids who broke their plastic toys and then build Scientific hollow logs had a lot better results with Babe Bees.

However, my next door neighbor who was a boy genius and always number one in his class was able to get a WenMac to run.  He designed and built his own CL model and could start the WenMac and fly around level any time he wanted.  Maybe it was quality control thing and he won the lottery.

Thank you all for your comments.

Soldering aluminum is complicated but what about gluing the aluminum tank together? CF tanks are glued also.

The advantage of aluminum would be cost and I guess it would be easier to make.

I have 0.3mm aluminum sheet (general commercial grade) and my regular metal tanks are 0.24mm, so an all aluminum tank would weight half as much a regular tank. It would be less resistant, but I guess it would be strong enough, no?

I guess the only concern is how long the glue will resist fuel.

Other then JB weld what other glues could be used to make an aluminum tank?

I just use the cheapest possible brushes for building up clear.  If they lose a bristle or two some fine sanding will take it off.

The real painting is doen with an air brush.

By the way, modern dope can be re-disolved with thinner or acetone.  The old stuff (Aero Gloss of the 60's) dried with a chemical change that could not be reversed. 

In the old days I could do a multi-color brush job with no problem.  With current dope the second color will disolve the first and make new color.  Hence the air brush system.

This past Friday 9-19-2014 the New York Post had another article about two incidents back in July. These people have an agenda, and don't care and don't read FAA rulings. All they know is that flying models are bad.

This will continue even though CL is grouped with tethered kites.  Some will insist that leadouts are actually antennas.

 Again, AMA loves the advertising money from Quad copters, very large RC, and Jets. All can be dangerous to full size aircraft and to people if they have a "glitch".

Mr. Peabody:
 Look who is talking about old. I now walk over a mile a day at a very fast pace. I ride a bike 5 miles or more... can you do that? I go the gym 3 times a week.  I ALSO NEVER SMOKED... CAN YOU SAY THAT?

Almost everyone on this forum is above 60 or 65, We are all older. Old today is 90.
