Thanks Gator, hopefully I will get it flying by March 15. I still have about 2 more weeks of work before I start to cover.

That looks sweet Jess..... Looks like you've put a lot of work into it.... I'd like to see how they engineered the whole wing tube thing.... I wasn't very happy with the way my SuDoKhoi 60 was engineered...

Hey luv2flyrc, good looking Cap. I like the 3 blade prop. Do you have a weight?

Jess:

Can you tell me how you cut the hole in the balsa sheeting for the wing tube. I'm building a 35% Carden Edge and I'm trying to figure out the best way to make a clean cut.

Default weight

I haven't got an accurate scale.

On the bathroom job it weighs in at 20.5lbs, that's with a KS cannister slung under the belly. The cannister probably adds close to a #.

My flying field is very noise sensitive and with the 3-blade Mejzlik and KS cannister the plane is whisper quiet.

Default Holes

rthorne,

My hole was pre-drilled on the Cap kit. The fuse sides are 90 degrees to the wing-tube.

As I understand the edge, the fuse angles and are not 90 degrees.

I did, however cut lightening holes in some balsa sheets with a dry wall hole cutter in the drill press. Just back up the balsa with ply wood so the balsa does not splinter. Then sand. Works great.

I hope no one will get the wrong impression about the type of flying I like to do.

Default Hatch

Gluing the hatch to the hatch mounts. I used dowels on the front of the hatch so there wouldn't be so many screws to mount.
