RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

That's horrible news to hear about your finger Critterhunter. I hope it recovers, and in spite of it all, you are being positive about it. Thanks for the compliment on the plane as well. I was...

Bash your planes for little or no money

I'm seeing this place slowly die and fall into obscurity in short order. It's a sign of the times, people have no money for hobbies any more, they are barely struggling for the basics, and it seems...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

You can try it with those booms without reinforcment, adding some plastic strapping to the sides of them would be reccomended, or the arrow shafts if you want to spend a bit, either or. Have fun...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Who hoo, success! I had a run in with a small tree, and a little fine tuning to get it working, mainly trying to trim 3 feet off of the ground since I did the initial tests in a super small area, as...

I did the final test glides on this bird, it can handle a heavy payload while still remaining slow as hell.

Along home brewing the bread yeast is far more forgiving, had my turbo yeast out for a...

Critterhunter, so sorry to hear about your holiday's, my story is similar, losing my brother due to his need for greed, and he's into crazy new age beliefs to boot, which with the ones he's adopted,...

Really nice looking plane Critterhunter. I can't wait to hear of the flight report. Stuff like this, you just cannot justify buying the ARF or Kit, this looks way nicer. I'm sure it's going to be...

Well, if you follow along here, it's a couple of rc plane buddies, more like online brothers, sharing our lives as this legacy of a thread has gone on. I think we've covered a ton of non rc tangents...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Those big batches are what can make you worry if things aren't going perfectly. I ran into a similar thing on this current batch of cider. I'm brewing it in the trailer now, so the temps aren't as...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

You can always cut the bolts off, drill and tap new threads into it if you have the equipment. CA is not waterproof, so soaking it for a day or so might also break it down enough to get the nuts...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Critterhunter, I think the dihedral is plenty for a tail feather controlled bird. I've done them too dramatic and they got so tossed around by the wind.

With the first batch of cider, it was...

My brother has a massive custom built pro brewery, he makes an extensive amount of beer, wine and cider. He uses only bread yeast, 100% of the time.

Well, topics tend to mesh here, as in the original was about simply building a plane from scratch using only cheap and/or free stuff you can find locally. Saves money in this process significantly,...
