I have started on this model from scratch / plans ? any way here is what I am building for the Traveling Engine / that I am wanting to get in on and maybe fly the engine if possible, then have for an .020 that I have so it may be some what heavy for the TE ,,,, but I am wanting to test flight it with a .020 to make sure it will fly . I think I got these plans from  George in NM. and I want to thank him for letting me try and learn Spanish Again. lol!   mitsubishi zero .010-.020 size . Zero_010  getback Smile

It's looking good Eric. Hinges look nice and even. Got a color scheme picked out? Or just olive green?

Hey Eric, did you by chance make paper templates? I'd love to borrow them if you did. Or a copy of the templates or plans. If you can scan it and open the image in Microsoft Word, and save it as a PDF and e-mail it to me, that would work. Nice little plane, and I need something to bolt the TE to also.

Ok I have very little offset in the rudder and am going to be nose heavy with a tanked TD .020 , I am thinking a penny as wing tip weight 1.5 gr. would bee enough ??? and should I place it in the middle of the WT or at the rear since I am nose heavy . may need some advice on the lead outs also when I get were I can hang the plane from them .

Well here is my bassactward progress the hinges stiffed up after dope and sealer , the wood is so thin that it broke in a couple places at the stitching so I cut it out yesterday , raining next few days good time to build /// this plane is made for the PeeWee and a TD is too heavy for it no CG so I had to back up and regroup but ......Its all good just note to self always dope /prime/paint before hinging Embarassed  any way here it is waiting for me   mitsubishi zero .010-.020 size . Wp_20116 I just hate that I have to cut the rudder to get the elev. back in there Rolling Eyes Eric Crazy Eyes

Yes, I've done stuff like that before. Made a mistake on my Berkeley Impulse build, not careful, caused cowl pinch to be too narrow so I couldn't use either the A.C. Gilbert .11 Thunderhead (similar side port to Fox .09 Rocket on plans) or Enya .09-III TV. To make apple sauce out of miscut apples, I'm going with a 1966 OS Max .10R/C.

You might be able to rig a joiner wire or hardwood joiner by drilling or cutting a hole. Assemble elevator carefully using slot and holes. Then install stabilizer. finish by carefully hinging both once glue dries.

Or, with a clean cut from a razor sharp knife, may be slightly away from the glue joint, would allow installing the elevator. Once glued, could be repaired such that no one would know.

Hey Eric.. This is a little "out there".. but, you could build a half-hinged elevator, like some of the guys were doing on their speed models.

This is CryHavoc (Mike's) Yak.

and Remy's Polecat
mitsubishi zero .010-.020 size . P1040610

It's not likely you'll be doing any overheads with 15' lines.. right? It's a ZERO.. set-up a balloon-bust and have at it!

Not into the 1/2 elev. Thanks though , hea got in a hurry George , I was on a roll and thought I could get by with painting just one color I could shoot it and bee done lol! Just cooked a lemon cake going with cream cheese frosting , had plans for HM BBQ opened the ham up and smelt like ass so now I have to go to the store to return and get another cant get that smell out of my nose ... mite have to get out the glue sooner than I had intended Very Happy The razor blade sounds good maybe can slit it and get the thing through there , I am going to glass that connection wire on the elevator this time and am thinking of going up to 3/32" and I just measured the pieces were I cut out the stab/elev. before and they were thinner than that Huh... called for 2mm I don't have mm wood !! I still don't like the Metric system after 30+ years . Eric This Site Rocks!

Sorry about the ham.. I wrote this before your last post.. and am just throwing some ideas out there. Since no one's commented on the tip weight.. A penny seems a lot to me.. although the new issues aren't copper and weigh less .. Huh... I don't recall what sizes of balsa sheet you're using throughout. I imagine 3/16" sheet fuse and 3/32" sheet wing/tail? I think this model is a better candidate for that .010 that's coming.. than an .020.. Two Cents What's the wing area? I'm guessing less than 45 squares. A 14" span x 3" avg. chord would be 42 sq. in.

You'd have more adjustability if you used a single-eye lead-out guide for both lead-outs to thread through. I used two safety pins for guides in this example, but you could use just one and have more linear area to adjust at the tip.

Update time, a few decals and a spray cover of lUSTREKOTE clear > was going for more pilots but didn't  like the white back ground on the decals and the rudder half I cut out to replace the elev/stab. assy got lost ? if I find it I'll put it on .. I have a Pee Wee I want to mount to test fly before the .010T/E gets here ... To day was not a good day to spray but I been in side for a few days because of the rain and after the first pic I turned it over and sprayed then picked it up after a few mint. and had picked up some of my box at the cockpit . So here it is without the engine and control lines ... mitsubishi zero .010-.020 size . Beeman10  mitsubishi zero .010-.020 size . Beeman11  mitsubishi zero .010-.020 size .
