Here are those shear webs with the horizontal grain. What am I missing. did Walter Umland make a mistake?
That one is not installed, just fit in place for illustration.

I'm lost...are you saying the grain is suppose to be vertical? If so i'd think the grain running span wise would be a little stronger?

Mark, shear webs trapped between the main spars or the TE sheets are supposed to be vertical grain to prevent compressing with load forces on the wing, keeping it from flexing up and down. They're less flexible in that direction. I'm pretty sure the back side of a D tube is the same way. They are most necessary between the first few ribs out from the root, and less so on the outer wing. Here's a good explanation. I refer to this site often.

ok, i've never built a wing with sheer webs on trailing edge and i guess could see it with compression being vertical grain.

The pieces are so narrow in width it makes little difference. Your only trying to prevent compression between the top and bottom sheeting on the trailing edge. I would think that Walter was faithful to the original design as he does a lot or research on his kits prior to cad. Walter is a real pleasure to talk to and I wouldn't hesitate to ask him any questions via e-mail. It certainly is looking good Rusty. It's a very nice kit and I'm glad to see it's going to get some air time. Ken

Like Ken said the TE shear web span of 2.5 inches already laser cut using horizontal grain will do the job and save you a ton of time cutting and fitting vertical grain pieces

I am curious how the plywood jigs with all the pin holes in your first set of photos work..IE how are they used? What is the purpose of the bizzion pin holes? Looks like alignment guides of some sort

I think I'll send Walter an e-mail. I forgot to mention this was written on the plans:
My Fancherized Twister build; 3 days til Huntersville - Page 2 Shear_10

Fred, the pins are through the pair of jig tabs built onto each rib. the first thing I did was pinned the ribs to the plans with one pin in each of the front and rear tabs. Then I laid the top spar in the slots, and used one of the kit supplied ply right-angles to get the ribs all vertical. After I could take the square and check all the way down the line confirming the ribs were all square, I put a second pin in each tab to secure it and also pinned the rib to the spar. After it's finished, I'll break off the jig tabs.

Oh, gotcha. I haven't quite figured them out yet, Usually when I align a wing's TE hinge line to the stab hinge line. I use a stick with index marks on it, tediously going back and forth ad-nauseum till I'm convinced it's straight. These are a more sophisticated example of that, but with no instructions, I won't know until I start getting close to that part of the project. When I know the answers, I'll make sure you'll know too.

Now, then, regarding the TE webs. I just went to look at the box and plans for Walter's contact info, and realized the answer. It's another of my over-thought, too quick to shoot, dumbass questions. Upon closer thinking, the supplied webs are 1/16", twice the thickness of the plan's 1/32" reference. At twice the thickness, they'll be fine, I'm going to use the supplied webs.

It doesn't look like much difference, but a lot of detailing has gone into it in the past few days. It seems as straight as balsa can be, and tonight I added the 1/4" x 3/8" balsa TE butt strip... or half of it. I was applying Elmer's wood glue and tacking it down with tape and pins, it became too unwieldy for me to handle neatly, so I took the razor saw and chopped half of it off to glue after the first one was set. If I don't go flying.

The forecast has changed to 19 mph winds, and that means well over 20 at the fort, so looking like a shop day Sunday. That's disappointing, I haven't flown since the week before Christmas, and I test ran the Oriental with its new head gaskets today. Next are the half-ribs, bellcrank assy and wingtips and it's done. The bellcrank and leadouts are already bushed and wrapped.

My Fancherized Twister build; 3 days til Huntersville - Page 2 01101611

Edit: Today, Sunday, I sanded to blend the TE joint. I then deviated from what I said was next and marked the hinge locations and a centerline along the TE and also on the flaps. And I took a tiny paint brush and painted some slightly thinned Elmers wood glue onto most of the joints that were previously CAd. I don't know if it added much, as I figured the hardened CA will prevent absorption, but it looks like it did soak in more than I expected, and filled minor gaps, of which there weren't many. This yellow Elmers seems like very good glue and looks cleaner than Titebond when it dries.

Earlier this week I got the weight box installed. Today I glued in the bellcrank. I added one extra 1/2" square to brace it to the lower spar on the inboard side. I'll also add a hardwood block to tie the top of the bolt to the top spar. It needs none of that, but it makes me feel better during pull tests. I also installed the leadout slider and the inboard 1/4" wingtip doubler.

Post  Ken Cook on Sun Jan 17, 2016 6:49 am

Rusty, I have to make a suggestion here. I wouldn't place any faith whatsoever in a single platform bellcrank. While it was the norm back in the day, this is a larger plane and it's going to be powered with more authority then a Fox .35 which it was designed for. I would seriously consider placing another piece of ply up above and use a decent grade allen socket head or a 1/8" music wire axle. I prefer the 1/8" music wire for that application and run it all the way through the sheeting encapsulating it with small discs of ply this way the bellcrank floats. While your platform will work, it's very prone to flexing and that can cause a control jam and a bent center pivot. Additionally, if you do use a single platform, fill in the bottom of the platform to the spar so that more glue area is provided to the bottom and your not relying on the inboard rib to take a side load. I would hate to see such a fine kit become destroyed like a fishbone due to lines getting slacked and a quick jerk. It happens and you've experienced those kind of forces. The wood in this kit is unlike conventional kit wood and while it's nice and light, it doesn't provide the same resistance to stress. I've bent more than my share of common steel bellcrank bolts and I refuse to use them for .35 and up especially the cheap quality crap that's offered today. Ken

Yeoww.
In meager defence, I did use my own stainless steel bolt. And there is enough bolt on top to do as I mentioned, to tie it to the top spar ("I'll also add a hardwood block to tie the top of the bolt to the top spar."). What I had in mind is to use a 1/2" engine beam with a slot cut in it that will slide tightly over the bolt to keep the screw from flexing toward the side and rear. And it will be epoxied to the top spar, spanning the width of the rib bay. The 1/2" square block in pic #3, glued to the spar outside of the inboard side of the platform, is tall enough to brace the platform and epoxied to the bottom spar, so I feel like that's a big relief to the inboard rib. I hope you can picture what I'm describing. I'll post a picture when I've done it.

Yes, the shear webs keep that wing from flexing when the plane needs sudden lift, especially in square corners or those high speed pullouts like the wingover and hourglass.

Getting back to Ken's concerns about the bellcrank platform strength. I hope what I've done will sufficiently tie the unit to both spars and prevent any trouble in a hard yank. Lets see what my friend and mentor think of this.

So, first I made this hard maple brace to capture the bolt end protruding from the top of the crank. Notice it has a brass tube fit into the cutout at one end. This brass will be JB Welded to both the hardwood bearer and around the protruding 5mm of the bolt tip.
My Fancherized Twister build; 3 days til Huntersville - Page 2 0118162211_zpsemefb9im

Next the bearer is epoxied to the top spar. The connection to the spar should take on any forces to prevent any bending of the bolt in the event of a hard line yank.
My Fancherized Twister build; 3 days til Huntersville - Page 2 01181610

The 1/8" ply platform sits on 1/4" rails that are epoxied to both the two center ribs and also to the bottom spar.
Also note the 1/2" brace outside the center bay. It is aligned with the edge of the platform and center of the pivot bolt. Any pulling force will be taken by that bearer's connection to the bottom spar to which it is epoxied.
My Fancherized Twister build; 3 days til Huntersville - Page 2 0116162334_zps3jo9thku
Note: This picture was taken before the top brace was installed, but can also be seen in the above picture.

I believe this will work the same as if I had originally built it suspended.
Hope so.
Rusty

Rusty, that certainly captures the load for the top of the bellcrank. I won't disagree with that. My concern initially was more on the underside of crank where the bolt penetrates the platform and the fact that there was a potential for the platform to roll out. It's always best to epoxy the pivot bolt in and secure it with a nut on the bellcrank side prior to installing the bellcrank. Unfortunately, unless the nut is real thin this can jack the bellcrank up too high. All in all, I think it's going to be very impressive and I hope it works well. ken

Hoping you have a great 2016 stunting and occasionally playing with a real airplane (combat)...grin

Man that was quite a jerk. Mine didn't make me fall, though everybody thought so. I just crumpled after it hit the ground.

I took my little gladiator out to play not too long ago. I was surprised, I kept it in the air for a whole bladder full. All I can do is keep it turning though, I need to narrow my handle width so I can tame it enough to fly it where I want it to go. I haven't tried flying with a streamer, that might make it easier.

I took a break. It was too cold for work in the shop, but this week I finally decided to button up the wing, and cut the center sheeting. It's done, save for painting the flaps, but that can wait til the plane is almost finished. Waiting for the next pay cycle to get a roll of Jet White Monokote. I test fit the wing in the fuselage and it's better than any one I've ever done. This is such a nice kit, thanks Walter Umland if you're out there reading this Lol. Probably not, but I told him as much on the phone.

I'm switching to rattlecan Duplicolor paint from NAPA for the Twister. They have a large selection. I'm using Duplicolor DC 540 primer from NAPA, since it's been recommended by Wayne and Will, plus many at Stunthangar... and DC Acrylic Lacquer colors( I think... But I'll let y'all know for sure when I buy them... not Acrylic Enamel) I already have the primer. A friend, John Tate of the Norfolk Aeromodelers has used Lustrekote on top of DC with good results until he started buying cans with poor spitty sprayers and quit. The LK I have now doesn't have that problem. The DC clear is not as fuelproof as the Lustrekote, however the colors are as fuel resistant as Rustoleum, so in a pinch, you could skip the clear, as I've done with Rusto.
EDIT: DC acrylic lacquer is NOT fuel resistant. It will need clear for this.

Here's are questions:
The Twister's fuselage is covered with ultra light fiberglass. I can not look at it and see or feel any fabric weave, and I am expecting the primer will ensure that it's filled and smooth. If not, I'll have to sand the primer back off and dope it with talc. Anyone know if talc and Aerogloss clear will work as a filler... and then re-prime and sand over that? Might that blow up the paint? Alternatively I could use Polycrylic and filler but it's a bit heavy, at least before sanding. But you can paint anything on top of it.

Let's just hope the fiberglass stays invisible, so I can simply apply it, sand it, and spray on the colors. Simple as that.
Here's to hoping.
Rattlecan Rusty

My personal feelings would be to take Aerogloss out of the picture entirely. It has too many incompatibility issues associated with using it. I've seen many planes where the fiberglass was set in Polycrylic followed with 1-2 additional coats followed by primer. That's how Allan Brickhouse finished many planes. Apply the primer lightly, scuff sand with a scuff pad between coats. Lightly build up your coats or the stuff will never dry and it will also shrink. Only put enough primer so that when you do wet sand, you take it down to the glass and stop. Ken

Yeah, that's what I thought, but since I have some Aerogloss, I figured I'd ask. Not much survives exposure to MEK.
That's actually such a dumb question I wish I could un-write it.
