Brodak Cardinal (Profile) kit - no plan
« on: August 25, 2021, 02:28:22 PM »
Hello

I bought a Brodak Profile Cardinal off a club mate but there is no plan or instruction.  I've figured out what most of the parts are :D but am wondering if anyone has any general recommendations.  I'm still early in my CL career!

I figure 3" rib spacing give its a 54" model.

Would you guys use the stock bellcrank (reversed I think) and plastic horns or go metal (RSM /Okie style).
What kind of throws on the bellcrank and horns?
Apart from the ply plate for the stock bellcrank I can't see any kind of winf spars or joiners ... neccessary?

I'm also going to go electric as I'll be able to nip out to the local field without annoying the neighbours (I have a site ot two to fly IC but one on the doorstep is a good option too)

Figure a glass fuse finish and Oracover/Profilm on surfaces.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Cheers

Mike

PS lol ... there are one or two pieces left over and just can't figure where they go!

Go to Brodaks and order the plan and instruction book.  It will save a lot of head aches in the long run. D>K

What John said.

While you're there, you can get all the electric bits & bobs you need.

Or call them up, tell them what you're trying to do, and they'll make recommendations.

The problem with electric is that once you get the smoke generator and sound system installed, the plane is too heavy.

Hello

Thanks for the offer I have a copy of the plan now so thanks all round.

I can see what one or to two of the spare pieces are for now.

Thankyou for your help guys.

Cheers

Mike
