Yea,

I have fine jigsaw blades and will sand to the finished size. Maybe by the end of the week the foam will be roughed in.

Mechanics

Hey Butch,

When I saw your layout, it looked like the top profile was way too thin but after I looked at the prototype again, I realized how narrow the body is....so I'm wondering what mechanics you're planning on using????? Mark

Hey Mark,

They will be custom mechanics. The main gear is 120 mm which just fits if my math is correct.

The mechs are not finalized but very close.

Got the templates hacked out with the jig saw. Final cut with the band saw then some sanding with the disc sander.

All looks real nice. I still have to work some of the tight areas but its getting close.

Me and the "help" hope to wack the rough fuse out of the chunk of foam tomorrow.

Ya know, I have to have a talk with the help. I think he is slacking a bit.

Yea, they help like that when I mow the lawn. When I am making dinner though, their opinion of me is high, because I have food LMAO

I segmented the tail so I can get a better cut on the tail section verticals. I will glue the foam verticals in place on the plug after.

Sup!!!,

Had a chance to start cutting foam parts. It will be easier to shape in smaller sections and keep the lines sharp. The tail view is pretty cool.

What tool(s) did you use to remove the tail surfaces?

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

Yep,

The fairing is 70 X 40 mm. There should be plenty of room for the Vario gear box. I may have to get creative for the linkage to the pitch change beam for the 5 blade tail. I made some custom parts for the 76 to hide the linkage all within the tail gear box housing and it works very well.

I cut the foam with a hot wire bows I made for less than $10. The big one has a 27" wire and 12.5" deep where the small one had a 8" wire and 9" deep. The wire runs along the templates and makes a real nice cut.

The big bow cuts well at about 14V and the smaller at about 5V

The wire is .020 stainless.
