Yes, days of the week are supposed to be capitalized.

Maybe the kid is taking his grand finales!

I took some pictures and got some stuff at my LHS. I reinforced and drilled out the wing as well as making an aluminum peg (6061 alloy as always). I just have to re-sheet the wing, and reinforce the fuse. Pics will be up tonight or tomorow.

Guys, guys...........He only made one spelling mistake,and left off one capital. Not really all that bad. I find that about twenty-five percent of the posts in this forum have grammer that is just atrocious, and spelling that is so bad , as to be unreadable; yet nobody ever complains . This post by qwertypemdas actually was one of the better ones. I'll give him a 9.5 out of ten

I think yall need to cut the guy a little slack.  We all make spelling mistakes and he is trying to help others after all.  We should think about promoting the hobby and helping others rather than nitpicking a misspelled word.  Which I prolly just did!

If I was picking on him I would point out that he just mis-spelled "tomorrow". Seriously though, I was just funnin' with him all along. I just find it odd how badly so many do with their spelling and grammar these days and people just make excuses for them. Sure we are simply on a "social chat site" where we are allowed to relax the rules but should we to THAT extent? My parents always taught me to put my best effort out in all that I do.

OK, off the soap box.

It wasn't just that he misspelled some words, but that he did it in the same post that he said he was taking his finals at school. That is the perfect storm so to speek. As hard as I have worked on my spelling and grammar throughout school and the hundreds of reports I have written, I believe I have somewhat of a duty to point things out at times. I will admit that I still get confused as to where to put commas sometimes.

OK Brett, I've got to play fair, so to "speak". Feel free to nail me whenever I make a mistake and I make a lot too.

I could say that I did that on purpose, but I didn't.[&o] Oh well. I did post a video of someone screwing up the spelling of some important banner once and purposely misspelled the the post to make it funny and nobody got it. It was pulled down by a mod because everyone was making fun of me. I thought it was funny though.

If we can't take a little kidding now and then we're lost. I'm the butt of plenty of jokes, trust me on that one, some earned and some not. Just look at some of the pics RCKen has posted of me, like he's got room to talk. OK, there I go again. He's a great guy.

I'm sure Ken would probably agree with you calling yourself a butt! He might use a different synonym though.

I'm as guilty as anyone for mispelling, but its usually from fat fingers and being in a hurry, not from lack of education or intelligence. But if some one wants to poke fun at my mistakes that's fine, it just means they might be leaving some one else alone for a while.

Ah, an "on topic"post.

Before you convert, take some measurements on your aileron horns and linkages, to see how much room you have inside the fuselage for them after you add bolt-on thread blocks.

Every single conversion I've seen where the thread blocks are inside the fuselage, the blocks interfered with the aileron horns and linkages. That may bewhy the OP hasn't posted again.

DuBro makes a nice conversion set, to be located outside of the fuselage. Then you just have to beef up the wing, where you put the attaching bolts through.

Good luck,
Dave Olson
