My dad also wanted one so I'm making 2 at the same time. Pinned 1 piece of depron below the other to cut it out at the same time. I also tried to save plenty of space on the depron so I can build another plane Cool



Cut out the wings and elevators and uhu-pored some floats together so far.

Sam when you upload a pic choose 640 size as it will show much easier on here.

Very smooth motor I've used them on a few planes now and never had any issues.

Cheers keith. Is there also somewhere special to get 3/8" depron strips or do I have to cut them out myself No other than that all pieces on both planes are cut out.

I'm sure jeff offered to come and cut them out for you sam Laughing Laughing
Oh hang on he just changed his post again Twisted Evil
You'll have to cut them out yourself bud, as long as you have enough to sand the edges of the fuse round it does not really matter if you go a little bigger.
Just sit your ruler on the depron and you'll whip through what you need in minutes anyway, 6x8mm is what i used on mine

Some more progress. It appears hobbyking steel epoxy dissolves depron, but thin cyano doesn't? scratch

Well seeing as no ones flying I got a bit more polaris done, now it just needs the elevator servo and elevator sticking on, and lots of colourful tape Very Happy
