Default The FNS

Here's a couple of 25 size FNS I put together, both are 40" spans. Purple one has a 24" coro fuse the other is 24" of sign vinyl covered pvc. The aileron version has a TT46 on it. The red one has a GMS25 for power. I wanted to be able to fly both this weekend and only had one small motor, and with the 46 that plane was fastest I'd flown. Rolls were hard to count on high rates and was a blast to fly. Both planes use rubber bands right now. I plan installing wing bolts this week. Strapping rubber bands on is a pain.

Looks really good! Where did you get your sign vinyl... a sign shop? Trying to figure out the brand names of the vinyl to buy.

Thanks for the comments..Hopsterguy, I got my sign vinyl from http://www.signsupplystore.com/. They run specials all the time. The kind I bought was their standard 5 year vinyl. Bunches of colors and the price is good. I got 5 30' rolls for around 50 bucks including shipping. cya Jack
