    Taco - FAT FREE

    Hey check this out... Been working with a buddy to simplify the building of the taco... Here's what we came up with.... The FAT FREE Taco!! I built this thing in literally 4 hours....... All the parts are CNC machined and just fall together... Very little fitting of anything.... We stiffened up the fuse with a 1/4" fiberglass rod running down the center of it....

    Weight of bones: 10 oz.

    That is killer. Are you going to keep and fly the prototype?

    If that isn't that strong, you might try running another rod at the top of the fuse.

    Paul,

    How does the "Weight of bones: 10 oz." compare to the Taco II?

    I think the main advantage, besides ease of building will be a stiffer fuse at the TE of the wing.

    Yup... Because the base is clear I decided to do the flag on the top and leave the bottom alone.

    I'm going to leave it mostly clear with some red stripes on the tail... and a canopy.

    Irvine .25 is going in the nose.

    I've been thinking of a "Blaine Austin" style covering scheme for my next bird... This flag design is from Gator... I just desided to put it on clear instead of white for a little variety.

    Love your trim scheme. Looks like it's waving in the wind. What do you use to seal the edges with?

    Trim solvent or a iron on low heat.

    you guys really raise the bar for covering...instead of just throwing on some cool stripes like I used to , now I have to sit and stare at it for a week to come up with a cool cover job
    Awesome job Paul!
