Michael, I use antique Solartex on my Pup. Solartex is no longer available from Balsa USA, but they are replacing it another brand that's will be just as good. From all reports it is same color and easy to apply as Solartex. I hope that is true, I love working with Solartex. I am adding you to the list of Balsa USA Brotherhood. Please keep us up dated on your progress and post pictures they tell the story. Welcome to the Brotherhood.


It would be helpful for me if all BUSA Brothers would post their BUSA Brotherhood number in their signature. If I have missed anyone please let me know.

Thanks Rich Antique it is I have read a lot of post about the pup but one thing I don't get maybe you can explain it I read that someone put 2 degrees of positive on the rear stab to compensate for power changes and to do away with the 2 degrees of down thrust did I read that right I would think if adding 2 degrees positive to the stab it would raise the tail up at a higher AOA what did you do did you build per the plans which I believe is the stab and lower wing is set at 0 degrees incidence and the top win is set at 1-2 degrees positive when you change power settings does the aircraft climb thanks Michael balsa usa brotherhood #161

I don't remember what I did with my Sopwith Pup build, I think I built as plans. With the Zenoah 23 or now 26, it seem to fly very well. Most biplanes do climb with power, seems like the BUSA planes more so. I did add 4 degrees positive incidence to the horzial stab on the 1/4 scale Fokker D-VII. This helped the climbing ands allowed the elevator to be trimmed to a neweral positional. This worked well for me.

I'm building the 1/4 scale pup and I have an issue with the aileron assembly. I can't get the leading edge to slide in between the ribs and 1/4 x 1 1/8 spar. I could move the TE back then trim it later or sand down the top edge of the LE. The side view on the drawing does show this sanded down.

I can't remember if I had the same problem, but moving the tailing edge will solve the problem. Sometimes the size of the woiod don't match up with the plans.

I just ran into the same issue on the Sopwith Camel. I moved the trailing edge aft until the ribs butted against the aileron spar properly. It didn't require much and I suspect that by the time everything is sanded and trimmed it will all work out.

Hey Guys, what is going with you all. Building anything new, getting you fleet ready for the coming flying season.still fly or just flying? The thread is a little dead, no activity, let us hear from you. I have the WW I planes ready for the Dawn Patrols and the Cub, Ugly Stick and Decathlon are ready. Still a little cold & windy here in Northern Oklahoma . I am building another 1/3 scale BUSA Fly Baby Biplane, should be ready in may or June. Here are pictures of my other Fly Babies. #1, 1982-2004 and #2, 2006-2009.

Let us know what the Brothers are doing:

A cluttered shop is a happy shop, right?. I just finished soldering the struts on my 1/4 scale Camel. You can also see the tail of my N-17 that is still flying after 10 years. Hey Rich, I'm a fellow Okie, just from the opposite corner of the state.

Matt, we have an Okie Dawn Patrol on Sept 10-11th in Ada Okla. Looking on the map, that is not all that far from you. The last three events was attended very well from folks from Ok, AR, TX, KA, and WI. It is a laid back Aevent, just fly, meet other modelers and have fun. We may have over night storage for the airplanes in a hanger, more details later. This will be our first year at Ada airport so many details to work out. Bill Holland, District 8 AMA VP, is setting up the event. Bill has CD several AMA events and has been a judge at Top Gun for many years. All sizes of WW I aircraft for Patrol, small foam to 1/4, 1/3 and 1/2 scale can be flown. So all Balsa USA Brothers add this to your schedule. We do fly at DAWN! This is a picture our first Dawn Patrol.
