RE: GSP Katana 72

Thanks for the thanks! Good memories of a good plane. I still get some mileage out of the stories of the knife-edge spins that this plane was capable of. I've never seen another plane of ANY size do...

RE: Warped sheeted wings

I can't elaborate on the plane. Sorry, I need to keep it under wraps at least until the prototypes have been tested. I don't want other kitters getting the jump on me.

RE: Warped sheeted wings

I know this has been a real headache for Slopeflyer. It could not have come at a worse time...I have been travelling during the week away from home and the shop. The shop is getting ready to move,...

RE: Warped sheeted wings

RE: Warped sheeted wings

Everyone: The reason I mentioned applying a rather simple 'fix' is that I thought that it would be easier and faster for slopeflyer to attempt to correct the bowing problem himself than to box up the...

RE: Warped sheeted wings

This is Tom Taylor, owner of Fiber-lite Composite Products. I have just returned from holiday vacation. 'slopeflyer' had emailed us about his bowed wing and I'd like to address this online to discuss...

RE: PVA Life after shot

Lock the room and wait until the Duratec arrives. The PVA should be OK provided it stays BONE DRY. How come you don't use a surfacing epoxy? Just curious. I would think that Duratec would be too...

RE: First Large Plug

Possibly...depends on the situation. IMO, foam sands easier than balsa, and I can lay down glass over a 'difficult' surface much easier than balsa. If you need more surface strenght, just add more...

RE: First Large Plug

Check THIS thread out. It contains details of the cowling plug construction for the fiber-lite 30% Edge 540. Some deviations from what I preached then to what I practice now:

RE: Airplane weights

What baffles me is why people keep buying into the lies. Now it's more or less ACCEPTED that these planes (50cc class ARFs) are going to come out 2 lbs overweight!

I couldn't find an ARF worth...

RE: First Large Plug

Very nice work guys!

I like to use polystyrene foam sheets (trimmed to EXACTLY 1 3/8" thick) then use the 3D CAD model to create 'slices' every 1 1/2". I plot the section of the slices, 3M77...

RE: Vacuum Pump where to get one

It depends on your requirements. For low-vacuum (<24" Hg) go with one of the small Gast diaphragm pumps like the MOA series as mentioned above. Unless you are doing vacuum infusion then this pump...

RE: Mold making questions

If you need alot of it, Resin Systems makes a very nice surface coat epoxy for about $75 a gallon. I like it better than the FiberGlast 1099 because it's a little bit thinner thus easier to pour,...

RE: Phenolic Control Horns...

I sell double-truss composite horn sets. Go to www.fiber-lite.com under 'horn sets'. Very light, incredibly strong / stiff.

RE: Throttle and Choke Pushrods?

I followed the advice of others and used nyrod on some gassers. IMO, nyrod is way too flimsy...there is enough clearance inside the nyrod sleeve to allow for slop in the linkage. I supported the...

RE: Fiber-Lite Edge 540

RE: molds and compression curing

For VARTM / VIP you need all the vacuum you can get. I use an oiled rotary vane Robinair pump that will pull to 20 microns (it's like 29.9" Hg). Basically you need to evacuate ALL the air out. I've...
