Ever get that feeling when things worked out? That special feeling
that your airplane is about to be covered?
Well, this little plane is my very first electric scratch built. I
have built them big and have built them heavy, but this one is very
special. Because it weighs a tad under 16 ounces with all the
necessary equipment juggled around inside. Allowing for the covering,
Yes, it has an inside. I don't mean to denigrate the planes with their
innards hanging out like so many park flyers. I have some of those.
This plane has a "real" fuselage.
The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the hinges. I dislike
hinging with a passion. Slits too deep, torn balsa, CA stuck to wood
and fingers, etc.
I thought first to use the "stitch and sew" method, then I want to
install CA hinges, then use the Monocote on top with 45º under the
control surfaces, Then there are other options too numerous to list.
Any words of wisdom on what you've done to avoid the frustrations of
hinging? My choice will HINGE on your input :-)
