Hi all. So with both winter, Covid, and our latest Covid restrictions put into place, I thought now would be a great time to start my Carl Goldberg Hi Thrust Viking build. As for now, I have just glued the two vertical tail pieces together, and started the horizontal tail assembly. I am NOT a fast builder, nor will this be a quick build, but will definately update it slowly as I go along. The only thing yet to be determined is whether to use a Babe Bee on it and leave it as was designed, use a Babe Bee with rudder control, or, cough, cough, power it with electrons set up for climb with throttle and rudder for turning. I have plenty of time to figure it out until I cover the model.

Should be - Hi risk Venture Chancey, Goldberg named it wrong.

Looks a little like the Vultures that used to circle my house in Florida. Smile

Eager to see the final product.

My Viking lasted one flight........ I never saw it again. If you don't have a large clear field, I would suggest a dethermalizer timer. Mine corkscrewed straight up spiraling, rolled out and flew level until I could no longer see it.

You didn't say how old you are......

During my days of free flight 50 years ago I remember doing a lot of running and chasing. And yes, I had one far heavier than yours (an American Junior Baby Yank with Pee Wee 0.020 power) go missing.

If nothing else at least install a rudder R/C so you can keep it within range.

Just my thoughts.

If you are asking me, I am 42. As for the rudder suggestion, that was also a thought, but was unsure if rudder only would be alright on a plane such as this. Also, if I was to go that route, would I then have to make the tail assembly a solid fixture I guess? Thank you.

The plans probably have the tail set up as dethermalized. It probably won't be much more work to have it steerable with the dethermalize function eliminated. Both are designed to get your model home.

Tissue probably?

Finish in something Hi Viz.  I would recommend against powder blue or white.  Smile  Good luck with your build Chancey, should be ready for next summers thermals. Put your name and telephone number in/on the fuselage.

Hi Chancey! If you decide to build it as-designed; for a dethermalizer... see if you can source a DT "timer" for the model, rather than the lighted-fuse method. Not sure how Ken's was set up.. but if it was a fuse-type DT, it may have have gone-out (extinguished) before doing its job. Those things can happen.. unfortunately.

Here's a couple of links.. but I have no experience with them.

Left wing mostly framed up and drying. Once dry, I gotta set the dihedral angle and glue it in the correct place before removing it from the board. Then as was the tail, I will be gluing the bottoms of the spars.

Wing building was pretty straightforward, so never snapped a picture of the other one being built. So now, the whole tail is built, as well as the wing. As I was building each wing panel, I made a dieheral gauge/block from a piece of foam to set the correct angle. When I was joining the two wing halves, I also made 2 more of these and set the final angles, glued and allowed them to dry properly, then added the gussets where they are supposed to be on the plans. While they are still in the 'rough', they will remain that way till spring when I can go outside and sand them. Next up will defiantely be the fuselage as that is all that remains. I am hoping to start that this weekend. More pictures to follow.

Looking Good Chancey , weird how the wing spars cross at an angle in the sections . Its moving along pretty fast for now / shame you have to wait so long to get the sanding done . RC Plane
