    Timber 110" Twin Build

    Very cool! T-Tail maybe?????? I thought it would be neat to make an iris opening in each wing panel with a motor.... Love dreaming this kindof stuff up!

    110" TIMBER Assembly Thread

    That is wonderful to hear! Sorry to say that Carl passed away a few years ago, we had many good memories together and I really miss his random phone calls to talk about model airplanes. I helped clean out his model airplane shed with his son and wowza there was a lot of stuff in there (still...

    Timber 110" Twin Build

    Very cool, you should be able to flat spin like a pro. Now you just need to make that whole assembly tilt up for some wicked VTOL :mario-banana:

    110" TIMBER Assembly Thread

    My pleasure! The gear is probably the 60cc H9 X-CUB gear, which is also on my timber. The gear comes in red and covered, I stripped them down and painted them "carbon mist" enamel. Yours appear to have been repainted in yellow? Can you get a flexible header to the cannister? There is someone...

    110" TIMBER Assembly Thread

    Welcome to GSN Laurent!! Think it's about 6-8mm. Basically, just enough for another hole with the same edge clearance. Having a quite motor will be nice, my DLE55RA is pretty noisy. There are no cowls available anymore. I contacted Horizon about a month ago asking for any molds or CAD files...

    3DHS 75" EDGE 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    Hey John! Sorry for the late response. The 73 Laser is hard to beat IMO, I really love that plane. The 75 edge does track great, feels a bit looser on the sticks so to speak with it's larger surfaces. There is some room for a small cannister and maybe a pipe, but I don't think the weight...

    The 'What did you do in your workshop tonight?' thread

    Sorry to hear about your loss, I've helped a couple families now in the same debacle of what to do with everything and it sounds like you did a great job.

    Scale Nelitz 1/3 scale Cub build

    It's just very difficult to trim post layup and as far as the wetting it's not as spongy as glass... Would be neat to laminate it in between glass layers for strategic support in areas prone to abrasion, flexing, or impact. Composite gliders use thin kevlar weave strips for the hinge material...

    Yes! Nikolai Gorban designed the Hawk, Hawk Pro, JOY, and helped design and build the Falcon along with Oleg.

    Discussion The I’m Going/Went Flying Thread

    Been holding back on you guys. Purchased a used 2.5m F5J glider called the “JOY” and after changing a few things and maidened it and have about an hour of flight time since then. Pretty neat glider and by purchasing it directly from the maker Nikolai at HQ Composites in Ukraine I kinda feel like...

    The 'What did you do in your workshop tonight?' thread

    It's all fixed now, but you are correct mike... Never has a single person told me building a fence was fun! I get the added bonus of working around glacial deposits... which means large random rocks.

    Those karbonite gears and arms work great on small electrics. Light and strong - but fretting eats them for breakfast on a gasser.

    Scale Nelitz 1/3 scale Cub build

    Last time I blued steel it was an old Remington 1100 12ga shotgun when I was in high school... it did not last very long. It's a skilled art that I never mastered.
