    Ouch ...

    I share a similar story with my first one Lars ... and feel your pain

    So I'm currently moving into bird #2, the airship "Recovery". With hopes of recovering my pride after that last one. About the same number of flights too.

    It's only made me hungry for more !!

    Bird 2, nice Tom! :)

    Bird 2 on standby here! waiting... for motors, BUT :)...
    ...the crash opened up new opportunities, now I don't have to wait for the OOS Emax motors...[​IMG]
    ... I can use the old DYS Storm powertrain for the new bird instead!:):)



    Some pictures of my wreck:) Gonna keep the wingplate for bird #3:)

  6. Ouch is right! So did you snap it he CF rod in that vertical nose piece too? Must have been a very hard crash...

    Not exactly the cf rod but right behind it where the back of the canopy mates up to the fuse. This was the first round prototype frame yet. In the current release now (in the photo) it has been moved considerably further back further for that reason.

    I think you built the first alpha plan as well ... same as the one i snapped in two.

    I am known as Delta. A little peculiar like Data but comes with a measurable difference. ... a delta factor.

    To make the tail section stiff enough... Wing plate, main spine, vertical and horizontal stabilizers are out of 6mm Depron instead of 3mm as on the old one.

    But even more reinforcement is necessary, so I sacrificed some of its scale appearance. A 1mm carbon fiber rod fixes both vertical stabilizers.

    The second 110% scale MiG 29 ready to fly, but it needs to be tested on the bench first, I suspect the props will cause the big elevons to flutter... Bench test video Later...

  18. Those servos better be strong to be able to center the elevons under decent throttle. ;)

    Yup, yu're right Jeff, the MG servos are still mounted in the crashed MiG, I'm thinking about using them instead ... but it all depends on how lazy!?:D I am when back from work next weekend...
