I did the contact cement this morning, and I only did the center section as you recommended. So far, everything is flat as can be. I hope to get building this weekend.

Thanks all!

Found this old thread, but I figured I would take a shot. I'm taking the plunge into magnetic building boards. I have a solid core door as a base, and went to a local steel shop and had them cut me a...

Just found this. See right under the F3A Vintage headline. It's from a while ago though, so who knows?

A Dalotel makes sense. That was another plane Hanno won with.

I saw an article mentioning they had 600 kits. I wish I had pulled the trigger last month when I had the chance. I may not have a shop anymore to build my classic pattern bird, so this ARF was...

Thanks, Matt. I think I got your process. I'm working out a plan to start a classic pattern bird using the lost foam method. My original thought was to cut the hole in the foam template following the...

Matt, thank you for this great build thread. I have a quick question. How did you cut the holes in the ribs for the wing tube? Did you do it one at a time via a hole in the foam template, or did you...

I have a set of plans for a Deception on my bench. The Deception was my last pattern bird many years ago. That's where the OPS came from. The plane was sold when I had to get out of the hobby, but I...

+1 Yak13.

I will be building a classic pattern ship over the Winter. I just have not decided whether I will use my old OPS Red RE or figure a way to get electric in there with the same speed.

I'm only thinking about electric for a challenge. For reference, Hanno's Curare runs a LiPolice LP-4025 /12T-510KV with a 12x10e prop. I might go a little higher on the kv if I end up going electric....

Sounds like it's time for me to order some balsa and contact RCfoamy.com. :)

No worries, Ed. I had a Deception back in the early 80's and loved it. Ended up getting out of the hobby by the 90's and sold the plane (kept the OPS red head though). Now, I'm back in with both feet...

I am late to the party, but can you point me to the CAD plans. Are there any sites that make laser cut parts available?

True, electric is probably sacrilege. However, I don't think that motor/muffler combo will fly at the field I'm looking at joining. That is especially true if the prop gets all that tip noise like...
