Thanks!
If not, I have a number of questions that I need answered.
Dwhall - I have a scanned copy of the instructions. I'll load them up once I get to my other computer (if i can work out how to load PDFs).

BTW - for anyone else watching, i figured out the motor mount, etc on my predator. Will find and post photos anyone interested in future

Thanks Hutt...I really appreciate it. There's another thread that details how a steerable nose wheel was added, and I think I will add as well.
At least I have a starting point, thanks to you...and God Bless Al Gore for inventing the internet!!
Best wishes,
Dave

Hi, all nice to be back.
Does anybody have the manual for the Predator?
My model was badly damaged moving house. I am particularly interested in
the spar.
Any information will be welcome.

Hi Jim. Sad to hear that the predator suffered in the move. If you look a few posts up you should see the full manual that i scanned and uploaded for someone else?

what were you wanting to know about the spar?

Default Predator

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
Came across the scans and printed them out.
Doesn't adress my main query though, which is
the wingspar.
What's the material from which it's made?
The spar was lost so I'm going to build a replacement.
From what?
The wingroot has an opening appx. 7x4 mm.so it must
be substantial.
Thanks again for the help,

Hi Hutt,
Looking at some photos,the spar looks like its carbon.
I am planning on cutting a spar with my laser with a slot
to fit a carbon rod, Will send you some photos.

Default Predator

Hi,

I'm rebuilding a damaged Predator and the question I have is
regarding the spar. The original was lost and I'm faced with replacing
it. The problem, specifically,is I cannot remember what the original
was made of.
The ope in the wingroot is rectangular about 7x4mm .
I attach shots of my solution.
I cut a spar with a rectangular slot (with my laser) and "filled " the
slot with a carbon rod.
Feels fairly rigid-the proof is in the pudding. Will let you know.
