Default SuDoKhoi 60 Repair

I just aquired a tired 60 size SuDoKhoi that needs some healing.... The biggest problem is the tail feathers have been severed.... I'm going to build a new vert and horz stab.... but my question is on the verticle stab.... Does it go thru the fuse all the way to the bottom or does it stop at the elevator? I'm going to post some pics later....

One more question... The sheeting on the wings is pretty sloppy.. it doesn't contact the rib contour in many places.... Do you think I can just let it go, or will this be a big structural / aerodynamic problem??

I'm thinking of fixing the fuse and recovering it... Then flying it with the ugly wings and if it goes well, redoing the wing sheeting and recovering....

I am almost positive that on mine that the fin just goes to the stab.

I wouldnt worry too much about the wing sheeting. If you do want to fix it and you have stripped the covering just make some pinholes in the sheeting where the ribs are and use thin CA to adhere the ribs to the sheeting.

I wouldnt think it would be a big deal to just fly it that way though..

I'm looking at using a ST 90 for power.... You think that will be enough? I've got some 9304 for servo's...

The ST .90 should be ok.
I am using a Saito 1.20 and to me its got just the right ammount of power.

How much does this one weigh Paul?

Don't mean to change the subject here guys, but one quick question. Does the wing come off on these or is it all one piece like the 40 size?

I dont remember the exact number. It was heavier than I had hoped and I remember thinking I was glad I put the 1.20 in it..

These planes dont come out light unfortunately..

Hi Paul,
I just finished building my Sud .60. The leading edge stick goes all the way to the bottom of the fuse. The rear bulk head has a slot in it to allow this stick to pass through on it's way to the bottom sheeting. Since it is supported by the surrounding sheeting it may not be critical, it depends on your surrounding structure. Also, I'm putting a Webra 1.2 on mine. I have a thread that is a few day old with several pictures of it in the bones. If you need more, I can take some but hurry, I'm ready to cover. All up weight with everything and I mean everything to make it fly except covering was about 6 1/2 pounds. If I can be of help let me know. Pete

By the plans, the forward stick of the vertical stab goes to the bottom of the fuselage. The rear stick stops at the horizontal slot. I'd be concerned with the sheeting issue. I'd fix it like Wayne said.

Hey Paul, How many planes do you have anyway?? Seems like you're always building them or buying them.

I started out by cutting back to good wood and squaring everything up.... Then I did some measuring and drawing on the back of an old set of plans to come up with the replacement pieces.

Would a 1.50 Saito be too much?

Billy,

Mine is ridiculous on power with the Saito 1.20. I dont think you'd need anymore.
