    Corporate made a thread about resizing…  Take the pic on your phone, open the image resizer ap, open your pic, downsize, save, open website, upload at the bottom.. the attachements button down there..

    Hot and humid Andy. We’re on the tail end of monsoon season. It will be nice in October if you make it out.

     

    John, I tried all the direction in the picture posting thread. Got the app, did the resize and save, but it won’t post. Had a pretty eventful weekend, and couldn’t get back to posting pics. Maybe I’ll call and you can walk me through it.

    Nice Ben! What kind of glue are you using? How much hardware? Looking real good.

    T-88 two part epoxy for the wood gluing. There are aluminum straps to be added to forward and aft spars at the wing root and strut attach points, all held in place with 1/4″ aircraft bolts.

    Spares are glued in. Now for trailing edge, diagonals, compressions, and a whole lot of other shit. Just like building one of my R/C’s.

    Not gone! Just don’t live out back no mo! 😆

    As for the fragile look, it does. But the strength of the wing is in the two spars that are running the length of each wing panel. Then the triangulation between the attach point from the top of the fuselage and the struts from mid point of strut to the attach point at the bottom of the fuselage. Ribs just hold the shape of the airfoil and creates the lift. There is going to be quite a bit of internal stiffening to each panel to resist twisting forces. Kind of like belly pans on a bus, but sticks that add compression strength and diagonals for twist. I will post pictures of these. Should have a good bit done this weekend.
