Nice build Jimbo!
I think to get the most out of your efforts to stiffen the wing, you might consider skinning the top as well. Just like DTF, if you remove the paper from just one side, it gets pretty floppy. With the paper on both sides, it's much more rigid.
Just another day in paradise!
Any day above ground is a GOOD day.

The "Unleash the beast" Project

Time to move on with my single motor TV FRC F22 (One of my faro planes last year)
for a Diff-thrust Twin modification. While I'm waiting for the new FRC MiG 29 twin.

Started with two new reinforced elevons, out of 6 mm balsa wood and oracover shrink film from my balsa era. 25 years old... but still working

Some pics.

away with the old singel TV motor unit.


New stuff

Newbie question. I'm trying to visualize how all the F-22 parts go together before building. I don't get where the PART 25 Fuselage Support Bridge goes. There is no matching reference on the plans (eg. the slots to put part 25 in...), unless I'm missing something. But I don't want to skip it since it sounds like an important structural component. Thanks in advance!



Hi! The fuselage support bridge goes in line with part 19. I've attached a couple pictures from the plans.  Screenshot_20190519-091526_Dropbox.jpg  20190519_092031.jpg

Thanks Jay! I saw the part 25 in the build guide. Those 2 slots should have been marked part 25. LOL. Thanks

Your right, your the first to pick up on that. I'll get it changed. Thanks for pointing it out!
