Duo Discus

Scored a small 3m Duo Discus which was a win. Beautiful little model! Looks like it’s been sitting in the box for a while, a bit of yellowing on the glass, but that should be an easy fix. I’ll get some time later to upload some images. http://topmodeltehnik.com/product/duo-discus-gfk-3m/ Image of website

LS8 Start

Started with the LS8, having a look at the alignments etc. Some parts great, other not so hot, but for the price, can’t complain. Also fiber glass reinforcement into the main former and retract box. I’ll also go by what others have said and add epoxy into the joiner box area.

Canopy and Rudder

Canopy has been cut from the main fuse, it was just a process of slicing along the lengths and finishing off with a hacksaw blade for the former. Pic below id of the rough finish, it’s yet to be sanded and finialised. Rudder post taking shape, spot glued to have it setup so i can work on the elevator brackets.

I have the bench test unit, so I can run them through that first to make sure all is well. Decided on the Corona DS 239mg Digital. @ 4.6kg with 4.8v they should be fine as aileron…
