  1. Thanks Cam , some of the guys in RC forums can be a little touchy about other peoples ideas and opitions .
    Yes the more brains the better i agree , that's how we get better at our hobby is by sharing ideas weather it's correct or not .
    Yes I don't have too many jokes and no Mom jokes for sure . Thanks for allowing me to add my two cents worth of ideas into your build :way_to_go:

    Have a happy New Years to you and your family .

    over the years, I have learned three things that are the worst part of being a doctor:
    1. Being forced to take ER call for free.
    2. Having to deal with hospital administrators
    3. Having to deal with other doctors

    one of my favorite physicians, a real lovely man, he just passed away one year ago, he would tell me, in the surgeon's lounge: "Doctors can be real As$^%*es."

    I agree with you, there are some doctors that are terrible, mean.

    I should say, my favorite part of being a doctor is dealing with people and doing surgery. Love it.!

    As you can see, I made no statements about lawyers, and that is, because they, for the most part, do not know much about medicine.

    Happy new Year to all my GSN friends!

    If you look at carburetor you will see an air intake and filter on it works great and it is made by DA. Keeps the dirt out and has zero effect on the engine no rpm loss at all great little air cleaner to keep dirt out of you engine.
    One comment if you face the Secraft intake forward you will run into some real tuning problems. Tryed it and could not get it to work ran it backwards and all my difficulties went away. If you do get to work pointing forwards would really like to know the outcome and what you did.

    In Dallas right now with the family. Took these pictures before leaving. Still not done with it, but you can get an idea of what I am doing. Once this cures, will lay one last layer of cloth and resin then fill gaps with the Dolphin glaze, then sand it smooth. Then I can primer and paint.

    I've worked for some really cool doctors over the years. I unfortunately can't say anything that nice about lawyers and dentists. ;) The ones I've dealt with always seem to want everything for free or beat you down in price. I had to tell an oral surgeon one time that I didn't try and talk him down in price when he worked on me, and he said "well that's different". I told him no it's not, I can't do your job and you can't do mine. He gave me a shocked look and then made an appointment.:)

    I have worked with most of the professionals but all I have to say is that lawyers are breed on their own. It is the profession that I avoid.

    Finally finished the baffles for the airplane with the twin. Now, to work on the baffles for the airplane with the quad.

    Also, almost done covering the last set of wings, except, I am having difficulty doing the final curves on the top of the wings.

    wings are covered, I just need to figure out how I will cut these patterns:

    Hey Cam,

    Here's a little trick I learned that you may already know. Make a cardboard or thin ply template of the shapes you want. Then take two pieces of Monocote and lay one face up and one face down on top of each other on a glass or very hard surface. Put your pattern on top and cut through both layers of Monocote at the same time. This way you will have two pieces that are an exact mirror of each other. Most importantly, be careful so your template doesn't move.
