If you can get the plan photocopied, turn the copy print side down on a new sheet of paper and use an iron to transfer the image. Also works great for transferring part shapes to balsa.

Dunno how...

Anything that securely bonds the cloth or tape will do. I've used resin, epoxy, Titebond, CA, and Ambroid.

Titebond stinks the least, Ambroid sands the best.

I still miss the Super-M props. The closest equivalent I've found are Graupner props (and they're awesome performers).

RE: *** Ultra Sport Brotherhood ***

The US isn't stall-proof, just highly stall-resistant (and it recovers very quickly). I learned very early to start my landing approach waaayyyyy out and waaayyyyy slow (and even then I often had to...

RE: *** Ultra Sport Brotherhood ***

Another good method of glassing a center section is to use Elmer's Wood Glue. Pour the glue into a small tub, put the 'glass into the tub and make sure it's thoroughly wetted, then put the 'glass on...

RE: Delta balancing

Sounds about right. Err on the side of nose-heavy, aircraft are a lot more tolerant of nose-heavy than t'other way.

RE: *** Ultra Sport Brotherhood ***

I love Graupner props. They've outperformed every other brand on engines from my little Coxes right on up to my .90 4-stroker (they're nigh onto indestructible too, as far as props go).

RE: What can I do with this .049?

You won't have any problems with aerobatics. If you fly inverted long enough, yeah...you might have an issue. Like Gene said, if you push it hard enough you might get a stutter or two. Cox Reedies...

RE: *** Ultra Sport Brotherhood ***

I altered my original landing gear setup on my US40, and did it the same way from the get-go when I built my US60. The US40 showed me that the blocks in the wings were weak points. I like...

RE: *** Ultra Sport Brotherhood ***

I built and flew a US40 in the mid-80's. Flying weight 6lbs even. First engine was an OS .40 plain bearing, it flew well although it needed a tad more oomph. Next engine was an OS .50 which really...

RE: Prop failures

It sure looks to me like it's either a manufacturing defect (maybe they're both from the same batch?) or a failure related the inherent design of the blades...possibly combined with other factors...

RE: AP .061 engine porting

Search through this forum. Port timing diagrams have been posted for both the Norvel and AP's. You can Norvel performance out of an AP, if you get a good AP.

RE: Problem with Cox SureStart

You most likely bent the rod turning it by hand when it was seriously flooded. Don't mess around straightening it, just get yourself a new piston/cylinder set. I'm not certain from your description...

RE: A simple solution for Cox fuel

Just did a quick search over at Tower, and see they carry Hobbico 1/2A fuel. It features a "special Klotz blend". I wonder if it's all Klotz?

On a side note, sounds like carrying the Sig fuel...

RE: Ace Whizard

Glow fuel + expanded polystyrene foam = gooey mess. You have to cover/paint it (and if you paint it don't use enamel, it dissolves it too). Econokote works very well, since it's a low-temp film.

Sorry for the loss! Quick question; in one of the slides in that video...the gap between the stab and elevator looks to be very large. Might that have been a factor?
