Hi Joseph;

Your latest creation looks terrific; but as usual, I have a few questions for U:

...what diameter carbon rods are U using?

...what is your covering material?

...what double shaft motor are U using/& with what battery-ESC, & where do you get them?

I guess that takes care of me for now; I really enjoy your work, and would like to try a few of my own, as they sure seem to fly great. Will close, with best regards from Wickenburg, Arizona, USA,

Joe Nagy.

Hi, returning few answers, it's pretty hard and expensive to obtain fine gauge CF, down here, I cut even my own from flat strips, I use anything I get on hand from 0.25 to 1.5mm gauge. 2mm on L'gear etc.
I use Glad Wrap, or very expensive Mylar 2-7 Micron, what ever I have on hand. I have managed to buy 3 Coax power units by Dualsky, dirt cheap as an old stock discontinued 8 years ago, there might be still some laying around if you do some world-wide search as I did, sending about 60 emails to RC shops all over the planet. Running them on 2S/240-320mA on PT props. (6-20A/ESCs)
This was my 1st. carbon frame, as an experiment, soon starting on another one much lighter one to suit the latest and lightest Coax T-Motor.
Best Regards, Frosty.

It has been pretty windy last few days for outdoor flying these light wing loaders, but today picked up perfect dead calm during mid day to maiden this latest creation.
