Main Wing

Been working on the main wing of the Watts New, being laser cut make life nice and easy, although i can still goof up and i did. managed to balls up the main spar, should have run one solid bit through the center. To fix it i’ve got hold of 6mm carbon tube that i’ll run through the servo wire slot. Plus i’ve used a spar for the trailing edge as well. As it wont be firing off a winch…

Sagitta XC – Dust off

She has been hanging in the rafters for years, about 11 actually which is disgusting of me. A big beauty should be flying and not gathering dust. So with a little nudge from the lads I’ve brought her down and with everything else asking for time i’ll quickly cover her and get her flying. I forgot how big it was, 4.2meters of wing.

Poy Loup Plans

So we rolled out the newly printed plans at Steph’s place last night at builders night. As you can see they get a little big. First cab off the rank is to find or buy a new building board that is a tad over 2 meters long. Next will see what balsa I have in stock and go from there. Keep you posted on the progress.
