Paul,
What kind of hinges are you using? Looks like CA hinges. Do these work better that clear packing tape?

TIA,
Jon

What are you using for glue on the floppy hinges?
Till I enlarged the pic of Gators plane, I couldn't tell where the plane stopped and the backdrop began. Most of stuff on the backdrop is better than my best work.[]

Foam safe CA ! You install them the same way as you would do with CA hinges. Cut a slot with an exacto and then a couple of drops of Foam safe (odorless) CA. These hinges are super strong.

Thanks for the tip. I just finished hinging my Shocked Yak and I like them better already. I double beveled the elevator, but only single beveled the ailerons and rudder. Sound ok? Looks like enough throw.

Thanks again,
Jon

Are there plans out there for chuck flyers, or do you have to talk to chuck? I'll probably never be able to afford these lectrics, but it's nice to dream!
