RE: To join, or not to join?

So, today was the day the Gentle Lady had her maiden. The weather was overcast but calm all morning, it had rained the night before. Around noon, there was a break in the clouds. Nice patches of blue...

RE: To join, or not to join?

I certainly would like to fly it as pure first. I don't think I'd mod anything until I've had some experience with the airframe as it is. In fact, I may not even mod it at all, but the option...

RE: To join, or not to join?

Thanks ART.

Spring it will be then... As much as I can't wait to try out this glider! Patience is always the hardest part about flying. I know the Rx/Tx works in the cold well, I use them to fly...

RE: To join, or not to join?

It's in the 20's here today. I would keep it stored indoors. Would below freezing temps cause it to lose its elastic properties? I may just take a piece of tubing and leave it out doors to see what...

RE: OS LA 46 revisited.

Mike,
If I recall, your a big fan of the Kadet Senior. I use a LA .46 on my Kadet senior. Works great. I have no desire to overpower that bird, as she is very stable and fun just cruising around at...

RE: To join, or not to join?

Ah, ok then. I may consider converting to a pull-pull setup in the future. That will reduce overall weight and potentially eliminate some of the tail heaviness. However, I'd like to fly her stock...

RE: To join, or not to join?

I too will be using a high-start. I did notice as I was finishing up this ARF, that it requires about 4 oz lead in the nose to balance. Is this peculiar to you guys?

RE: To join, or not to join?

Thanks Da Rock. This ARF came with a wooden wing joiner sandwiched between two aluminum joiners of the same likeness. I'd feel a bit out of my comfort zone doing as you suggested. I think I will...

RE: To join, or not to join?

The directions indicate to join the wing halves together using the supplied wing joiner and 30 min. Epoxy. They also state to apply epoxy to the root wing ribs. It appears to be a pretty permanent...

Nice. Is that so, upon a crash, the plane can rewind time and give you another chance?

RE: Can flying high speeds break apart your model?

Has anyone flown the AR-6 Endeavor? This plane is super fast on RealFlight. Personally, I like slow and nimble. Wouldn't consider flying the AR-6 for real any time soon...

I really want to build some...
