Net care cripple two

Unread post by Theuns v V » Fri Jan 22, 2016 8:21 pm

I was asked to do a comission build for someone to fot a Rapy 50 into one of my 222 fuses.
I hope to get the layups in tht molds tomorrow if the weather holds.
The cripple two will be the UT one without retracts.

I have been reading up allot and also spoke to Wonko, it seems on the Rappy the tailrotor box can simply be flipped 180 degrees to run on the port side of the fuse, this would be an interesting experiment as the 222's fin is located on the starbord side....

Pix to follow

Basic fuse pirmed ready for final sanding.
I will be making molds for the horsontal and vertical stabs as it would be lighter than the balsa /glassed ones I make now and speed up production.
I have also gone over to making vac formed clear windows instead of the solid ones

I have decided to make molds of the vertical and horisontal stabs as it will be faster and lighter to make composite units.
They will have spars and moundpoints internally.

Hopefully the first set will come out of the molds by tomorrow....
