Dagbigboy's explanation is dead on. It took me a long time to figure out how to get monokote to stretch around compound curves. I use a trim iron for compound curves and do a little at a time. As...
Although Fly RC magazine is very ARF oriented, they do have a build section in the magazine called "Masters Workshop"
Also, here is a new magazine that may be interesting....

I finally go the plans sent off. I sent you a PM with more information.
Yes, I did get your replay. for some reason, it only shows old sent pm's not recent ones.
I will get the plans in the mail this week.

I have made a copy of the plans and sent you a couple of PM, but it does not look like they are being sent.
Can you tell me if you got them or not?
Here is a link to the manual: http://www.kavanrc.de/instructions/hrr502aquastar.pdf
I think I have the plans somewhere in my shop. I will look this weekend and let you know.
I have a CG Chipmunk on the shelf. I think that will be my next build.
How did you get the cowl color (red) to match your covering so well? what paint did you use?
Can you help me identify this biplane?

My mind is not so feeble that I can't remember my switch locations for the 6 to 8 minutes of flight after I spend a minute to memorize them.
It would just be convenient for me to have the...
Those of you that have a 8FG know that the switches and knobs are labeled RA, RB, RC, LA, LB, LC etc.
This makes it convenient for channel assignment, but I have a tendency to forget what...
I looked on thier web site, but I did not see any.
You are correct. That will add some inconvenience if I damage a control horn. I am willing to take this risk.
I am looking for robart style pivot hinge that has a built in control horn as part of the hinge.
I saw these on an arf I put together a while ago, and would like to use them on a scale project...
I just think that it's funny that you can get a Futaba FAAST 7 channel receiver for $40.00, but the FAAST 4 channel receiver is still $100.00.
This is a pretty easy fix.
You can get a new antenna here:
I broke my antenna on a 6ex and ordered a new one from...
I am fairly new to the hobby (3 years). I am starting to collect kits. I suppose the anticipation is part of the reason I am collecting.
But the primary reason I am starting to collect kits, is...
I use CA on most of the plane, but when I need to glue areas that take a lot of stress (Vertical and horizontal stabilizers, Joining wings, and firewalls) I use 30 min epoxy.

Also, here is a link to the club search...
Before you buy any planes, I would check out your local clubs. Many clubs, like mine, have 1 or more planes that are designated for training.
We have people that can train with a buddy...
I built a 40 size utter chaos from Blue Jay. It was a challenging but rewarding kit to build. It flies great. For a sport plane it lands extremely easy.1921958
I ordered the part from Tower and put it on my O.S. 40 fp. It worked good. I just had to open it an extra turn.
I will probably buy a couple more to keep on hand.
someone referred me to this O.S. needle valve assembly that tower carries: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXCR44&P=ML
It appears to be a needle valve assembly for O.S. 10 and...
