Default Walt Moucha PJ-260/295

I am looking to see if anybody has a scanned copy of the building instructions for this plane. I seem to have misplaced mine and I am starting on the wing soon.

Hey Airacobra, I found mine in the shop. Give me your e-mail, and I'll send them on.

For those of you who built this plane, does the kit suggest you replace the balsa spars with spruce. What did you guys do who built the plane.

As for the spars, I used the kit supplied balsa and they have held up fine.

I have joked about this with others, but the wood spars are darn near as hard as spruce. I will plan on putting the wood spars in with webbing in the center section. I think it should be more than sufficient. Thanks again.

I am looking for some suggestions on what to cover this plane with. I have used Koverall in the past for projects like this and I could use it on this one as well, but I was wondering if anybody has any experience using any other material suited for this type of plane. I could use monokote, but for some reason i don't think I could make myself do that on this plane. Give me your thoughts please.

A friend of mine had the PJ. His was covered in Solartex, and painted with Rustoleum. It was powered by a Q-52, and flew vewry well.

Tom, mine will have a Sachs-Dolmar 3.2 in it. I have just completed building all of the sections of the top wing and I will now be gluing it all together. Hope I can complete that tonight and then start the sheeting on the bottom of the wing. The wing has built very easily and I am anxious to start the bottom wing.
