    It ought to keep you busy with exploring all there is to explore. The first time I tried coupled flaps was on a .35 powered C/L Stunt plane. It was very smooth and stable in level flight, but super...

    I've never seen 1/2 A RC planes that could do the "Brute Force" type stunts. The smallest I've seen "do it all" was the Morris Hobbies .15 sized "Pen Knife" with a piped MVVS .21 and there was a...

    It will be very cool to watch some really crisply executed "squares", "vertical hour glasses" and "square eights"..!

    Creeping forward with cowl work.
    I want flush fitting cowls, instead of the more simple "overlay" type for these 2 planes.
    So, this means that the foam "plugs" need to be under cut to allow for the...

    I don't like getting stretched too thin.
    I'd rather devote adequate time to fewer projects to actually seem them all the way through to their logical end points and the project can either be...

    I use plain old bondo automotive type body filler. Summit Racing sells a nice line up of polyester fillers that are a little bit nicer than Bondo brand filler, but they are more expensive.

    In a pinch I have had my wife sight the angle of my drill bit while she holds a carpenter's square in her line of sight, while I concentrate on maintaining a perpendicular angle as viewed 90 degrees...

    Yep. I've flown countless hours of RC and have never flown a purpose built drone. I've also witnessed countless other RC planes being flown and have never witnessed drone style flying.

    An old smelly, nicotine stained drunk used to show up at our field about once or twice a year with one of those Balsa USA delta pusher type models.
    This plane was the heaviest model for it's size...

    All it takes is 1 over inflation to spoil the latex. I haven't done it yet, but I plan on converting my Cyclon .061 to backplate pressure and just use Hayes 1 oz tanks for 1/2A.

    The tubing has a...

    I'm really hoping that the HK parts work well. Being able to go with just a single lipo cell really expands the possibilities for small RC.
    Maybe the obsolete NIMH packs can be used to heat thin...

    I would emphasize that the control sensitivity of a basic trainer begins with the line spacing at the handle. You want an unresponsive feel at the endle, so the line spacing for a 1/2 A trainer...

    Static test the thrust angle [of any plane] with the model held by the wingtips on the CG. You will be able to see which way the model tends to pitch if the angle is off.

    Sorry to hear about that...!
    I think the new Camaros are hideously ugly, so no loss there, but losing a day at the flying field deserves compensation....
