    RE: My new Q40 STREGA airmodel

    Your project looks great.

    I have one technical question. Why do you CNC a plug, as oppossed to the mold. I have seen others do this as well and I am puzzled why not straight to the mold?

    You can make multiple molds off a single plug, if you make a mold thats all you got.

    RE: My new Q40 STREGA airmodel

    I understand, I assume this is if you are manufacturing as opposed to personal use, however I do see some guys cutting aluminum molds for the purpose of manufacturing.

    What material do you use to cnc the plug it looks like a plastic of sorts.

    I am only asking because I am curious about the various techniques used, I am currently making a Q500 fuse and V tail plug using traditional methods (by hand) but only for personal use.

    The aluminum molds are very good, but milling aluminum mold has a very high cost......Aluminum is very expensive and it takes a long time for the milling mold.
    This material I used is very cheaper and very fast milled...........It is a material-specific modeling prototypes (i dont know the name)
    To build molds airmodel this technique is most excellent and that at the same time is cheaper
    I had great teachers: the Germans .......and I have followed this forum http://www.rc-network.de/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=56
    I used a similar technique to construct a wing of a F3D but in this case I used a different material(A little more expensive)..."Methacrylate "in this case I polished only . http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_4594549/tm.htm

    RE: My new Q40 STREGA airmodel

    I have used two different boards light gray #5020 and red # 5179. The Ren boards have to be sanded, primed and painted after being machined to achieve a pristine surface. The gray is easy to prime and paint. The red is almost imposable to prime and paint. You need some real special products from Dura Technologies. The CNC people like this product because of the ease of machining. If I did it over I would spend the extra money and use aluminum.

    RE: My new Q40 STREGA airmodel

    Paolo,
    Congratulations, very nice looking plane

    If it is of any use and for you not to spend money and time, a friend of mine here in MΓ©xico submitt for approval to the AMA and NMPRA a Q40 called Extasis, which first design have winglets and they were not approved.
    I see your Strega have winglets too, so I think it would be good for you to ask them before making the wing molds for preventing you to double work on your wing molds.

    Good Luck and congratulations again.
    VΓ*ctor Arreola.

    RE: My new Q40 STREGA airmodel

    Victor,
    I believe Paulo's already receieved initial approval for the airplane.

    Paulo's version of Strega is based on when it did have curved up wingtips (see the pics he attached to one of his posts). While his aren't 100% true to scale, they aren't any farther from scale than the rest of the Q40's.

    Isn't the Extasis a mid-wing airplane? Which one was it based on? I don't recall any real Forumula 1 type airplanes, other the the Kelly's, having wingtips like Paulo's showing. If the airplane Extasis was based on didn't have them, the model would not be approved with them.
