RE: Palmer 132

I haven't been able to work on mine - other things have priority for now[:'(]
It's safely stored on shelves and I hope to be able to get back on it this next summer.

RE: Palmer 132

Hi Sam,

Thanks for checking those props out, but I'm going to be using a standard 2-blade Zinger wood prop. I've done some bench testing here and feel this will work fine for me. Thanks again.

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

I didn't answer your previous post because I don't know anything about building with foam. I was waiting to see if anyone else would answer you. As far as cutting out new pieces from the...

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

Interesting 3D of a working Robart, Fowler flap mechanism. The only thing that may be misleading is that the animation shows the wrong half in motion. The nylon part with the glue holes is...

RE: Douglas DC-6B Information needed

Hi Sam,

Thanks for the tip on the plans, but I have a set of John La Belle's plans and am very happy with them. I haven't started framing my DC-6B as yet (I've only made my engine cowls and air...

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

I'm attaching some photos showing my inboard flap installation. I'm missing the top sheeting that lays out over the flaps (as indicated on the "wing rib templates", sht. 5 of the drawings)....

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

I'm real sorry about the unfortunate accident to your C-130. I hope you won't become too discouraged and want to quit on it - you're very close to finishing the building stage. Get a new...

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

I'll keep you posted on my flap installation.

I've been bench testing an AXi 5330/18 motor with different props. This morning I did a test with a made up 4-blade which I built from two...

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

My flaps and ailerons are almost ready to install. I have them glassed and the first coat of primer has been sprayed on. I made my flaps, ailerons, elevators and rudder from solid light...

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

I'm using those Fowler-type flap hinges on my bird, but I haven't installed them yet so I can't be of any help there. I can say that Tower Hobbies carries them for $68.00 for a pkg. of...

Olsen,

Really looking good! You're coming along very FAST. Do you work all night long on this thing too?:D

RE: Palmer 132

Props4ever,

Your C-130 repair/rebuild is coming along real nicely. I went back to page 52 and took another look at the pictures when you first got this bird! I have to admit, I don't think I...

RE: Palmer 132

Here are a few up to date photos. The wing is in place, but not yet glued. This wing is really a slow building item, with all those spar webs, etc. I also have the ailerons and flaps made, but...

RE: Palmer 132

Props4ever,

Your rebuild is much more effort than our "from the beginning" build! While I can see where the additional challenge of correcting the damage and the mistakes by the previous builder...

RE: Palmer 132

Olsen,

Nice start there. I remember being at that point. My problem was that I wasn't thinking straight and I built two left sides![:@]
After I cut the formers off the one and glued them on...

RE: Palmer 132

ergocentric,

Thanks for the isometric drawings. These will be refered to as I attach the center wing section.
And thanks for the PM on taking photos. I have no experience along these lines -...

RE: Palmer 132

Sam,

I did see those remarks about not using the SIG joiner, but no one gave a good reason for not using them. I feel they just favor the wing tube because that's what they've always used. Like...

RE: Palmer 132

Props4ever,

Thanks for those pictures. It's very hard to find a picture of the top view. Two of those show me how the wing to fuselage finished connection looks.

I've got some of those SIG...

RE: Palmer 132

That previous photo makes the wing section look as if it just warps down (and too far at that)! This is not the case. Here are a couple more photos of the same wing section from different angles. The...

Olsen,

I hope you have a very enjoyable build with your C-130. Be sure to review this thread for errors in the plans that previous builders have noted - it helped me a lot! If you have any...

RE: Palmer 132

Dave,

I agree with the "washout" article in as much as not twisting the wing AFTER the sheathing is installed. What I'm doing is slightly (2 deg.) twisting the framing only and then installing...

RE: Palmer 132

I forgot to mention - be sure to glue that 1/4" square sub-leading edge in place as you glue each of the ribs. This will greatly help in aligning the ribs for glueing to the spar. Glue the ribs #28...

RE: Palmer 132

Props4ever,

I saw on the drawings that the top wing spar is perpendicular to the ribs, so decided to build these two outboard wing sections upside down. By fixing the top spar flat to the...
