Default Telemaster 40 Build

Hi guys! My first build thread ever, but surely not my last. I had to stop active participation in this great hobby for personal reasons, but I am now back and so looking forward to much building. This version of the Telemaster is V2, kit # TEL 1450. It is a one piece 73 inch wing. Don't think it's available any more. This particular kit was cut by Top Notch Product Company and I can see that the laser cutting really is, well, top notch. So far I've cut up the plans, assembled the required registration pins and began on the left wing panel. I'm going to use a Magnum 52 4-Stroke to power it. At my club's field noise still rules.



The left wing half started.

Good luck on this project PMCafee! I'll be following along.

Now you'll see how much extra work that goes into taking pictures and putting words to your photographs. I always liked how the Telemasters flew...A few members in my club have the Senior Telemaster.

Telemaster is one of the all time greats. Increase the size of the rudder by 50 percent and the elevator 50 percent. This increases the control when float flying or towing up a glider.
