Default RE: OK Models, Baby build thread

Was able to get about an hour and a half out there tonight. I was able to cut some balsa to replace the spruce stringers. Teh spruce was over kill. I replaced it with some medium balsa. I kept the stock ply formers 3 and 4. Those are the ones at the leading and trailing edges. I may go with a bolt on wing. I have some 10-32 nylon screws. I could use two of them and that would hold well enough.

I worked on the stock G version tonight. Tomorrow I will work on the E version to keep them together in the building. I need to go by Hobby People and pick up some square carbon tubes for the spars. I think the balsa and carbon spars will be stronger then the spruce one that came in the kit.

It is coming together pretty well. I have the fuse ready to plank. I will get some more pictures tomorrow.
