Uh, that would be me :roll: :lol: The real test is to see if you got it perpendicular to the R1 ribs and therefore to the fuse...

Nice work. Liking that white GG? I sure do.


LOL. Just ribbin ya Brian! Yes, it is squa to the R1 ribs. That the first thing I checked after sanding it etc.

Yes. I do like the white GG. Works great. Sets up faster. Easy to sand too.

Stopped in at TNT yesterday and dug through his scrap phenolic box next to the counter...8"-12" chunks for a buck...took home enough to do the next 6 planes or so. With 4' of tube I spent $26.

I sanded it before. Then I take it to the garage and use compressed air to blow off all the dust.

No sir. Just make sure you don't touch the wood after you stained it until it dries. Or else you have red clothes and hands! :shock:

That's what I thought. And It will get to show off Hazz's great design on top of it!

Here she is all fitted up and nekid! Lovely! 2lbs 10oz as it sits.

Brian. Do I have to cut a slot in the fuse to fit the elevator on it for final assembly?

Yes, cut a wedge in the vertical rudder support and then glue it back in place after you install the h-stab and elevator. I cut the larger side of the wedge towards the front of the plane such that as the rudder pulls the wedge tightens.

After comparing some specs Mojo 60 1,000 sq in, vs the EE 60 978 sq in

capthis wrote:And the DLE 20 all up weight is 29ozs, Saito 100 21 ozs, Saito 125 25ozs This seems more and more doable.

I have not seen Mike's fly but when talking to him at the club meeting the other day he says it's awesome.

You're gaining 5-8 ozs with the gasser, but you can also carry much less fuel. Makes me want to build a Mojo 60! :)l


So... after you have said the EE-60 is the best airplane... sex with movie star and all.... then you want a Mojo 60 on DLE....

Me thinks you are getting brain fog......

Btw,

Found a way to reduce the EE60 build manual file size a LOT!

If needed, it's attached.
