    RE: Fleet Brotherhood

    There are four attach points used in raising the plane and the owner of this bird has a fake WWI maching gun quad pod he puts up there for his enjoyment.

    RE: Fleet Brotherhood


    ORIGINAL: retransit

    Steve,

    Depending on your power, Steve, you shouldn't have to worry about added weight in that area. My Fleet needed some weight in the tail and I accomplished that by moving the servos to the rear and placing the batteries under the floor in the rear cockpit. Of course the main reason for this was that I have a 6.17 lb. engine hanging out front.

    Bob

    Bob, I am somewhat relieved to hear that a heavy 5 or 7 cyl engine will work on the Fleet. I recently picked up a 7-70 Seide engine that weighs also in 5-6 lb range ( haven't weighed it yet)...I had been advised that this engine would be too heavy for a 1/4 cscale normal size bipe ( as oppsed to a larger two seater WWi bird with larger wings and lighter wing loading for example)
    The Fleet I have and photo documentation for judging is based on a real 7 cyl Warner engine I'm pretty sure.

    I plan to replace the Saito 220 ( plenty of power) with the Seidel....larger prop and lower RPMs is the goal..and more realistic in the air.

    RE: Fleet Brotherhood

    Hank, I don't have anything for that aircraft other than that picture. If I ever get to Pensacola I'll take some pics.

    Eric, that Seidel should look great and will probably weigh about the same as the ASP.

    In the interem, here is the Pensacola web site with all the eye candy one could want for inspiration.

    http://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/e...aft-on-display

    Merely click through all the pix of which, one is the Fleet from the bottom.   I do like the paint scheme and looks like the aft upper wing tie fittings may indicate a reasonable CG start.

    RE: Fleet Brotherhood

    I finished the wing covering with the pinking tape an glue dots. I was trying to remember what I used for the fixture to paint the wings. It escaped me so I made another mounting. A short video shows how it works:

    RE: Fleet Brotherhood

    I"m not sure what but from the home page click "Explore"  then "Exhibits and Collections" on the drop down then to the right " Aircraft Display".

    Lastly look for N2Y-1.  Interesting it has a steel prop instead of the standard issue Sensenich wood beauty.

    Nice stuff just the same.

    For those that have never used spray equipment to paint their aircraft, I put together this video while I was painting my Fleet.

    Bob,
    Don't you have problems with over spray outside? I painted a fence once and over spray got on a car two houses over and I had to pay to have it buff out.

    No problems at all. If it got on anything, it would be my cars. I don't paint when it's windy.

    RE: Fleet Brotherhood

    Steve,

    I use Klasskote and it takes a period of time to cure. Lacquer will not stick, as it dries real fast and all you have is dust. Enamel is about the same as Klasskote as far as drying is concerned.

    That being said, you can get the cured over-spray off with a clay bar system. Buffing, unfortunately, removes paint, along with the offensive over-spray. I've used a clay bar on my cars for years and it removes everything, including road grime that soap and water won't. I swear by it. The clay bar is rubbed over the paint surface with a lubricant, such as Maguier's Detailer. Just spritz the Detailer on the paint and rub the clay bar over the surface. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. It comes out as smooth as a baby's butt without harming the paint. The first time I used it, I couldn't believe it. If your paint is faded, it won't help that problem. That is when you need a cleaner polish.

    Of course after the clay bar, you must apply a wax to protect the paint surface.

    The clay bar also works on Monokote.

    If you want to cut down on overspray, use an HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) gun. Lower pressure, less overspray, more material on the work.

    This happen a long time ago at a different house so I don't remember the setup. At this house I think I will be ok but I have not sprayed hear yet. I don't have a gun but I do have a compressor. I will be looking at Lowes and other places for one.

    On the Fleet I have the elevator fixed and I got wood to make the new rudder. I got paint matched at Lowes so we will see how it goes.

       STEVE, I SET MY P.S.I.  AT #4  JUST ENOUGH  AIR TO PUSH THE PAINT THROUGH THE CANASTER.  i SET MY SPRAY NOSIL TO  # 2 SETTING. THIS GIVES ME A SPRAY PATTERN OF 1 1/2 IN.  YOU WANT THE PAINT ON THE OBJECT, NOT IN THE AIR.   IT ALSO ELEMINATES PAINT PIGMENTS  DUST FALLING BACK ON  UR  OBJECTS.    HANK .
