Re: Wright Stuff C

Well, we have a flyer, a balsa biplane with max wings and stab sizes, a rudder than can be locked right or left, flat wings braced at the tips with fins to act as dihedral, 8 grams exactly. The plane is symmetrical except for right thrust. The tail section is noticably more frail than usual for lig...

Re: Boomilever B/C

One time my boomi friends walked over and quickly dropped some glue on my palm and then sprayed it with accelerator... It was a lot of glue too. Did you get massively burned? That sounds ridiculously painful, the closest I've been to this was getting welts from accidentally getting hot glue on my l...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Hey guys! Just a general question, but do you usually just buy 1 kit brand or buy multiple kits and learn from there? Last year I bought the Senior Flyer which was a AMAZING plane designed by Joshua Finn, but the year before that I didn't build with a kit. This year I have already build the 2020 Se...

Re: Wright Stuff C

As a manufacturer I couldn't care less, but as a mentor of umpteen young modelers it makes my blood boil, especially considering who writes these rules. He should know better, and he keeps doing this crap anyway. Josh, since you seem to have a specific person in mind, would you care to share exactl...

Re: Boomilever B/C

I know my team used this stuff last year and we plan on using it again this year. >> http://bsi-inc.com/hobby/insta_cure.html It's really thin and gets absorbed into the wood so all you need is one drop for a joint and it dries almost instantly. Make sure to wear goggles while using this stuff thou...

most people don't but the blue ca is super runny and it kinda stung when you touch it for me. I use the purple which is a little thicker so id recommend that
its usually used more in flight events

Re: Boomilever B/C

Hi, can anybody suggest a good adhesive for this event? Also, do we need to build our own test apparatus? Thanks!

Re: Wright Stuff C

I assumed that left and right turn bonus will force kids build airplane closer to real airplane, symmetry, not optimized deeply for left turn. Maybe just like RC airplane, adjust rudder and aileron (optional) between the 2 official flights. Tiger there are many other options to consider for the bon...

Re: Wright Stuff C

The rules are poorly formed resulting in truly ugly airplanes. Doubling the stab span would have greatly eased the trimming difficulty and made for prettier looking airplanes. Basically, the rules are crap because they wanted to screw us all over with difficult to fly airplanes. As a manufacturer I...
