Hold my beer...I wanna try sumptin!

« on: May 17, 2017, 09:24:45 AM »

I've been fighting a back injury, so I've been spending a lot of time at the 'puter designing.
This is one of the newest things coming out of the "skunk works" as my wife calls it.
I wanted to push my programming abilities AND my machine to see what we were both capable of.
This is a totally carved body for my PT-19. The design is 2 pieces, what I call a clam shell body.
The original plastic fuselage weighed in at 76 grams.
The carved balsa one pictured below is only 23 grams! I had to widen the fuselage a bit to get a Black Widow inside.
I will post here periodically as this is a slow going project. ( I'm the one that's Slow Going!  Grin)

Awhile back, Daryll White had sent me a brand new Cox Hyper Viper, which I am also developing with the same process.

If there is enough interest I may kit these.

Thanks for looking

If you grow slow, they catch you.
When they catch you, they stick you in the ground!

Some guys just have all the talent!  Very, very cool. Hoff  I would love to see what you do with the Hyper Viper as well.

I would also buy one or two sets

Even thinking I could adapt one of my Ace Foam core wings sets

cool project and good looking work

I have been very tempted lately with the new lower cost Laser and Pin router DYI stuff--- but the software is still terrible and the gantries sound very fiddly
