>>I am offended by their continual attempts at trying to install stuff I don't want, such as their toolbars and their homepage. Screw that!<<

Gee, I never run into that. At all. Ever.

Yep, .odt is a LibreOffice file type. Use it all the time.

When Helicoptors starting flying at our CL/RC site in Southern California they caused all sorts of problems but everything worked out and now people are use to seeing Helicoptors at the flying sites. I think the big change with the drones is that the Drones have FPV (first person view) and they can be further away from the pilot. I lump helicoptors and Quads in the same general category, but now people expect to have FPV and a video camera attached which is a big change.

The registration will difficult to enforce

I use the following stuff from BalsaUSA, it irons on and can be painted. It is tough like Koverall but can iron down to wood. The Natural finish can then be primed and painted.

I stopped using Dope a long time again and have been fiberglassing models ever since. But the model structure is open I use this stuff. You use an Iron and heat gun just like you would with iron on film.

Some guys use Polyspan with Dope with great results

Here's the Brian Eather prop list. Robert responded quickly and allowed the .odt file type.  Grin Steve

For those without LibreOffice or other compatible software:

As always....I'm amazed at your work. Hoff


I'm amazed I don't stop using dope. God I hate brushing dope in prep for covering a wing.

Hi Dan. Five now, actually. Three kits and two planes. Rare as "hens teeth".  Coffee Your kit, mine and one up in Seattle. Hoff

 Ty Make it 8. I owned two Kits back in the day. Plus  John Brodak has one in his collection. How is the wood in your kit. Mine was least to say on the heavy side.

Sears used to sell those kind of pins.  They were in the same department that sold post holes.  Hard to find that stuff any more.


One of the problems with those Sears post holes is that it was difficult to transport them out to the field.  They had to be suspended in some sort of a plasma force field and that was difficult for most ranchers and farmers.

Bob Hunt has a video on how to make a work surface flat. Basically you run a string from corner to corner spaced off the surface with ply shims at the corners. Then use another shim to test the surface for flatness by passing it under the string in various places. My glass top is shimmed using old time cards, about the same thickness as a file folder. Even though it is only 1/8" glass, it is flat within the thickness of one time card.

Thanks for the good words Steve, I had planned on lining the intake as well as the hole for the igniter with 1/64th plywood. Finally picked up some this week end and work on that will resume this week.

 I made some other progress this weekend, I intalled the improved bellcrank/leadout assy. into the wing and worked on the canopy/cockpit details. I also started on the handle for this airplane.
