I thought she did, but a couple of days ago when I had the flu pretty bad and thought I might not make it (I made it) she got mad at the thought of moving to the boondocks for a flying circle she wouldn't need.  Merry Christmas to you, too.

Looking good there Don.   What power you hiding in that cowl.  Muffler looks like a Stalker or K77 ?  Whats the design ?

Thanks Allan.  I drew up a set of plans for a plane around a Stalker .61 a few months ago, and finally got around to starting the project. I'm now almost ready to install the wing and stab after a bit more sanding and another coat or two of clear on the wing.

I added both top and bottom spars to my first venture into E-powered stunter.

Profile Delta Force, designed by Mike Pratt.

This is the same wing jigging method he uses in his other designs.  Wing is fully in the air, but each rib has 2 little feet which are glued to the bench top glass.  Once the structure is glued together it stays straight.  I will add the trailing edge and the top side wing sheeting before I break it free from the jig.

The jig is integral to the wing ribs.  The two feet are laser cut as part of each rib.  There is a perforation between the feet and the rib to permit the feet to be easily removed when the wing is stable enough to be removed from the jig.

The jigging feature must be added by the designer or whoever creates the CAD file used by the laser cutter

Hope this is helpful.

Working on a Tiger Moth for fun scale. Today I put the top spar in the upper outboard wing, sanded the lower wings and mounted the leading edge. Oh ya, had a dixie cup of red wine while I was at it. Started to wet sand my stunt .25 model also.

In my shop today I turned on the heat.
Then framed up the wing for my 2nd 1/2A Pathfinder.  The first one has a Norvell .061 and flys great on 45' lines, corners like a combat ship.  This 2nd one will have the Norvell.074, hoping to go out to 52' lines..

Allen,
FYI - I have built a few 1/2A P'Finders and flown a few hundred 1/2A Pathfinder flights w/ Norvel .061's, Galbraeth head, two shims and a Nelson plug. I agree, Great combo. [See Photo Gallery, District 5, row 17 1st pic and Row 19 far right]. To keep the plane light (under 11.25 oz) and obtain proper balance without adding tail weight, I trimmed 1" off the nose and moved engine back. Just checked weight of my Norvel .061's and .074's with with factory mufflers and spinners.
the .074's weigh 2.8 oz, the .061's weigh 1.9 oz, for a .9 oz diff. If I were to use an .074, I would locate the fuel tank on the inboard side and move engine back about 3" (rough calcs) based on previous model weights)).
Just some info to consider, your results may vary.   :)

Yesterday I went out to the garage, where I build. It was colder in the garage than outside. So I went outside, looked the fog over, went in the house and back to bed. Being retired is great. H^^ LL~ LL~

Today I went out and took a photos of some push rod ends and cut the TE sheeting for a Magician 35 wing. Still colder in the garage than outside. So here I am typing this, inside. LL~

What would it cost to heat the garage?

Today is only the start of Winter, they say on the snews. Shortest day of the year, they say. Spring is a faint hope on the distant horizon. Sorry about your 5 days without electrickity. There oughta be a law. We went through that about 10 years ago. "Far" worked to keep us warm, hot water for oatmeal, tea, and then the BBQ pitched in with some hotdogs or steaks or somethin'. Gardners had it much worse than we did, with relatives visiting for Christmas.  D>K Steve

I've been away from model aircraft building and flying for the last forty years.
It's been gnawing on me to get back involved over the last few years. I fly the full size planes every day and am heavily involved with Homebuilt aircraft construction and test flying but my roots kept beckoning.

Last summer I went out to the local CL field and was handed the old handle to give a 1/2a a try. Thanks Paul it was absolutely joyous.

I determined to dig out the old models and supplies this winter and get back into it.

On December 18 I dug out my many times moved and abused models and supplies and proceeded to lament their deterioration as well as celebrate the forgotten treasures I found.

Now that things are out and accessible I look forward to much enjoyable productivity this winter as well as lots of flights and inevitable lawn dart escapades next summer.

Thank you Sparky, Windy and Al Rabe for your inspiration to me in the past, present and future.

Wishing you all tight lines, calm winds and many happy times for the new year.

Today, I did yesterday's work again... Grrr!
I tested a 6-minute epoxy joint I made yesterday between two 1/4" balsa spar halves. It broke at the joint! The test puddle was brittle too. It was pretty chilly when I mixed it, maybe not enough hardener. I don't know.

The other joints are all fine, and I almost never get a bad epoxy set. When I do, it's the opposite, too soft. Today I switched to 30-minute epoxy and warmed it to about 70 degrees before pouring and mixing it.

Our high today was twenty some. My workshop (garage) is heated; but it is NOT heated 24X7. I have found this small "personal heater" to be invaluable. Besides keeping my hands warm on the benchtop, it make an excellent epoxy warmer upper. The heater costs less then $20 at wally world and the granite squares are "free" countertop samples from the local home center.

That's a good idea. I do have a little heater and use it except when I'm lazy, so I have only myself to blame. In fact, in the summer I put an aluminum plate in my freezer and place the mixing paper on top of it to slow the reaction. Reminds me of the Marble Slab ice cream parlor, if anyone is familiar with it in their area. Pick your flavors and they mash and mix it on cold marble.

I worked on an engine cowl for a green Box Nobler I picked up from a friend that some else built> I had already stripped all the covering off it and had to do a lot of sanding .( I don't think the guy new what sand paper was) I also remover a 4.35 oz of lead that was pop riveted to the fire wall. I've done a lot of work on the cowl to get better air flow and to get it to fit better. I hope to start covering it soon and then get it painted and ready to fly by spring.

Reset the the fixed broken tail on a Ring Master 207.  I had dropped, broke and fixed the tail a couple months ago.. 1/2a's are a bit to fragile for this ham fisted builder.
