    RE: Lightning Build

    Cool thanks!

    RE: Lightning Build

    I'm working on the FIN - and have a few quick questions.
    The rib diagrams include FN-1 , but FN-1 doesn't show up in the plans, and I didn't see it in your picture of your fin build.

    I suspect this part is no longer needed, correct?

    Thanks,

    John,

    You are correct, FN-1 is not required. It was left over from the design process.

    RE: Lightning Build

    Thank you! It is really fun to build that great aircraft. As you have seen i had already wings and elevator unit from the Xaros a plane witch is build from a friend of mine. So i had to change the wing tubes. Also a T-canard is planed. But i wonder how you finisched your fuselage with 581g!! How light where your balsa sheets?
    So thank you Jeff for having the oportinity to share your plans with us!

    RE: Lightning Build

    Panzi,

    The key to minimizing weight in the the fuselage was mostly due to balsa wood selection. I ordered 25% more wood than I needed so I could select only the lightest. The difference between the lightest sheets and the heaviest sheets for the fuselage sides was about 60 g. I adds up quickly. If I recall correctly, my 36 inch by 4 inch by 1/8 sheets were between 19 and 21 grams.

    Good luck with the build.

    RE: Lightning Build

    Looks great Hans! Getting ready to start mine soon. Already have the foam core for the wings. I was going to change the colors because they have already been done but I really like that color scheme!

    A beaver would look good on the tail though
