Cool thanks!

Half time right now. I must be the official Beaver Southern California fan. Am I bad when I see a big O on the back of a car I have to pull in front of it so they can see my orange beaver sticker?

I'm working on the FIN - and have a few quick questions.
The rib diagrams include FN-1 , but FN-1 doesn't show up in the plans, and I didn't see it in your picture of your fin build.

I suspect this part is no longer needed, correct?

Thanks,

John,

You are correct, FN-1 is not required. It was left over from the design process.

Thank you! It is really fun to build that great aircraft. As you have seen i had already wings and elevator unit from the Xaros a plane witch is build from a friend of mine. So i had to change the wing tubes. Also a T-canard is planed. But i wonder how you finisched your fuselage with 581g!! How light where your balsa sheets?
So thank you Jeff for having the oportinity to share your plans with us!

Panzi,

The key to minimizing weight in the the fuselage was mostly due to balsa wood selection. I ordered 25% more wood than I needed so I could select only the lightest. The difference between the lightest sheets and the heaviest sheets for the fuselage sides was about 60 g. I adds up quickly. If I recall correctly, my 36 inch by 4 inch by 1/8 sheets were between 19 and 21 grams.

Good luck with the build.

Looks great Hans! Getting ready to start mine soon. Already have the foam core for the wings. I was going to change the colors because they have already been done but I really like that color scheme!

A beaver would look good on the tail though

Gerald,

That looks awesome. We'll figure out the graphics for it this weekend and get it ready to go. Jeff, do you know what font you have been using on yours?

That looks fantastic, I can't wait to see the entire thing.

Good luck with the rest of the project!

Hey Jeff,

Where did you get your carbon fiber sheets? From here?

http://www.cstsales.com/uni_carbon_fabric.html

web binding, net binding? Does it matter?

Thanks,

Robert
