Lee just for what little it's worth I built one of these a year or so ago and don't think much of the method of jigging.  If the wood is soft the structure is pretty light to be able to work on and hold any trueness on the rods.  I would and did rather jig with blocks from the leading and trailing edge to solidly hold them straight and parallel throughout the building.  Sheet the top,  then turn over and re-jig to sheet the other side.  Pretty hard to build in warps that way.

Hi Don, love your work, wish I could afford more plans.  Just a suggestion, why not gather all the suggested aircraft and create a poll to see which one to do next.  I think that would be kind of fun! Hoff

Let's backtrack a bit.

Am I being overly concerned or is canopy replacement not a bad idea?

What is the difference between a APC 11x5.5MRP Multi Rotor Pusher Propeller and a APC 11x5.5E Electric Propeller.  I understand that one is a pusher.  APC doesn't  make 11x5.5EP.  Is the APC11x5.5MRP really the same thing just being hyped for the Multi Rotor market?

From what I hear about the 12-6EP, 10K will be too fast.  I think 8500 to 9000 would be close.  Maybe somebody who flies that prop will clarify what rpm its spinning. 

Also keep the weight under 54 oz. or you'll be running out of battery.  Flight times are more like 5 min 15 sec.

You are probably correct on the RPMs.  The good news is that the KR timer is easy to set at the field.  I guess another question is about cutting down a 12" prop to 11"  This will change the tip shape.  Is this a big deal?

If you are using ether from a spray can it has a top cylinder lube in it that burns at a very low temp and comes out black as coal even if your engine is rich and undercompressed with a light load prop. It's not a problem but your engine will coke up a little faster.

During our trip to Golden State last week Paul Walker and I were talking about one his old models, the original "Bad News" built during the winter of 1985 for the WC in 1986.  Powered by a ST60 it used a tongue muffler.  He still has the ship and it looks almost new.  He wants to get it off the wall and fly it some more and ask me if I still had any of the Czech mufflers I used to get occasionally and sell to US stunt flyers in the late 80's and early 90's.  The last two I had ended up with the late Tom Lay.  I'd like to borrow one from someone so that I can make an identical copy for Paul.  I know they are out there but can't remember who I sold them to.  I can remember Steve Buso getting several from me but I don't know how to get hold of him.  Anybody that can help me?
