Hi Pete. You still building and flying in Whitehorse?

Subscribed. You're teaching me a lot about glassing. My first and only attempt looked okay but could be better.

I do have a Bonanza in the stack. I hope this thread will motivate me.

Since most of the heavy parts (engines, tanks, landing gear, etc) are in the wing, that's why it is so heavy. The Duellist is the same way.

Don't worry about it. Most twins are way overpowered.

RCJeff,

I wouldn't be too concerned about building light behind the center of gravity. You are most likely going to replace wood weight with lead if you go too light.

just my 2 cents. Your...

As Dominik says the Duellist comes out nose heavy. Hollow the nose block and the nacelle blocks as much as you can. Fully sheeting the wing only adds a couple of ounces over cap strips. Don't really...

Smith Miniplane

Yep, that's not uncommon. On my SMs I mixed up lead shot in an epoxy slurry and poured it into the nose bowl surrounding the spinner hole. It was nowhere near 10 ounces, though. More like 5 to 6. ...

They are the big flat plates at the inlet just below the cockpit. They move to cause a shockwave which slows supersonic airflow into the inlet so the engine always "sees" subsonic flow even when the...

If it is plastic covering, then use similar material (monokote, ultrakote, etc). If it is painted, use paint or vinyl sheets.

It's really up to you and whatever you have on hand.

Light on top, dark on bottom

If it's an ARF, already covered, put some dark stripes on the bottom and nothing on top. If it's already covered/painted dark on bottom and light color on top, you're all set.

Don, do you have a WAG on what a set of your retracts would cost?

I have a TF 182 that I may be willing to do surgery on. I have some hangar rash to fix, may as well go whole hog.
