    Microball rebuild

    Icrashed my scratch built Microball. It came in a little heavy just over 7oz. I built it per the plans from the AMA magazine. I know the motor is old technology, but my budget for this rebuild is similar to the original build 0.00. I will use only stuff I have around the house. I am going to make it into a profile in an attempt to get the weight down into the 5 oz range. I think at that weight it may fly better. Ihave no plans, just some left over sticks I going to through together and try to make it work. Ifirsted removed the covering from the wings. Ihave some lighter film I want to use. I am going to make some square stock for the fuselage. Ihave no real plan on the look of this thing, Iwill see what happens when I am putting it together. Whats the worst that could happen? Iglue my fingers together . Been there done that.

    RE: Microball rebuild

    Okay, the prototype is done. Time to cover. Next time I will buy the the square stock. I had all different thicknesses, because I cut my own from scrap. Nothing a sander couldn't hadle.

    The rebuild is completed. Now when the wind settles down I'll give it a go. I got the weight down to 6.2 oz.
