yea it's a great tool for sure. takes a few hours to draw out the parts and a matter of minutes to cut them. i keep pushing for a larger bed machine that will cut metal....

Looks good, Roger. You have a stuntable easy build sport plane, ought to be a lot of fun to fly. I just wished our area here in eastern NM had calm weather, like when I lived in California, Arkansas and Virginia. Smallest I fly so far is .15 because of that. Ron Cribbs can testify to that.

thanks!  we have quite a few breezy days here. most often though in the summer the wind clams down early evening.  i am about 3 miles from the atlantic ocean and maybee a somewhere around a mile from the closest bay.

i think i will order another piece of this air foil. depending on how this one performs i might mess with the fuse length

Roger
I'm back in town and tryuing to wrap up loose ends. So I owe you $23, right? How do you want it? In $100 bills? :-) Paypal? And if you send me your address, I'll print you off a copy of a plane with flaps you might like.
Here's a link with a picture, third post on second page of the thread, if I screwed up the link. It's called a Wing Master. I really like the plane and want to build another, but would make minor changes to the flaps for strength of the fuse.

Hundreds would be fine LOL!
Duke, I will pm you my email and mailing address. I like the plane. It looks similar in construction to mine. If you have a drawing of the ribs etc that you need send that along as well

Thanks!

Progress on my second trainer. I laminated the fuse from engine mount back to about 3/4" past the trailing edge of the wing with 1/32" plywood. Did the same on the stunt trainer.

Post  roddie Mon Jun 08, 2015 10:24 pm

SWEET Rog! Thumbs Up  I like it a lot. Coupling the flaps is tedious.. but I found it easiest to use a drill-guide attachment that comes with the Dubro hinge-slotting tool (#216) to drill the holes for a U-bent music-wire joiner. I twist the drill-bit with my fingers or a pin-vise through the hole in the centering-guide on the tool. Bending the "U" perfectly level takes some patience too. I install the coupler/joiner-wire first.. then mark and cut my hinges in. (same process for a split-elevator)

Here's the tool.. (shown with the drill-centering guide installed) I think the three drill sizes are 1/16", 3/32" and 1/8".

1/2A stunt trainer design - Page 3 Dubro_10

Here's the flap/elev. linkage on a tri-plane I designed years ago. The flap isn't split on this model though.. but the elevator is. I cut a < notch in the fuse for the one-piece flap.

1/2A stunt trainer design - Page 3 Rog_cu10
1/2A stunt trainer design - Page 3 Rog_cu11

Kind of a twist on "built-up"/sheet-slab construction.. wings and fuse.. covered in Mono-kote.

1/2A stunt trainer design - Page 3 Rog_cu12

The tripe's tail-section of the fuse is framed with 1/4" square-Spruce stringers. It's hard to see in the pic.

Thanks roddiie! I may need to invest in some tools. I have always just gone the exacto knife method for cutting in hinges and yes flaps were always tedious as I remember. I'm also going to make one with a bit longer fuse to get a bit more space between the trailing edge of the wing and leading edge of the stab and see what works better

Update on the bipe. So far I only see 1 fitment problem that I need to fix. I had enough material laying around to cut out a kit except for the 1/16" plywood for the struts. Hope to get to the LHS in the next couple days and pick up a small piece of ply to cut the struts. Other than that so far so good. I also have some plastic coming and hope to include the windshield as well

Nice Rog! What's the nose's vertical dimension? Wondering how an aerosol-can cap-cowling would look. That bipe would look wicked with a cowl!  Cool

1/2A stunt trainer design - Page 3 3-16-110
1/2A stunt trainer design - Page 3 2-19-110

A few key provisions for a radial/reedie mount would be to use a pair of 3/8" sq. Spruce blocks.. vertically adhered both sides of the nose.. on the thrust-line. Make them only just longer (taller) than needed to accommodate the engines back-plate mount. I used 4 Brass tabs mounted to the tops/bottoms of the blocks, for additional support for the cowl.

1/2A stunt trainer design - Page 3 4-10-111

I ended up mounting the engine cylinder horizontal/outboard. The trim accents help to give a more 3-D illusion to a cowling on a profile fuse.

And then there's Jim Roselle's gorgeous Staggerwing..

now that's cool roddie!

i love all the detail in yours but that red one is really sweet! i think your right, a cowl would really make a difference!
the nose is 1.75" high but it would be easy to build up a bit. whats the smallest cap that will work and what should i look for?

Cowl is a sharp addition to the Ring bipe, looks really good, firewall holes should provide ample cooling air through the cowl.

I need to get the other two finished up. Not even sure I have another bee to put on this one..
