Spars done

Posted on November 16, 2014 at 5:37pm 5 Comments

spars.jpgI finished up my wing spars tonight, all in all it was an easy build.  My transmission went out on the Explorer and is gonna cost 1500.00 bucks to fix........ So that will delay my next and last aluminum order for a few months.  Time to make wing ribs and tidbits.

Time to dig into spars

It's been a busy summer with kids sports, boating and working.  The boats are put away and the time has come to start drilling some holes.  I'm getting ready to start my spars and I have to admit that I'm not looking forward to these, don't know why, just dreading them.  My building buddy Timothy has his done already, so I will be leaning on him for much needed motivation.  Some times,...... ok most of the time I wish I had a pile of money to buy a kit but that's not going to happen. Well,…


On to the next step.

I finished my flaperons tonight.  I was not looking forward to these, but found them very easy to scratch build.  First one took the longest and it got faster after that.  I logged 6.5 hours from cutting the skin out to having the part finished.

Now its on to the spars...... hoping I only have to build 2.
