Can you do a 60"-68" core set? I like the looks of the 3DHobby planes, but I would rather have foam.

Yeah, he has been digging out of the worst snowstorm to hit Omaha during Christmas. It sucked..I just left there last night. I think he was a bit tied up with family and the holidays..

Wild Fred: You will see them any day here. I did not ship last week. As Zamfir said, biggest storm we've had for a while. Post office did not even open for a while. Ice, snow, wind and more snow. Drifts over 6 feet. My uncle and aunt JUST got out yesterday. Been stuck in the house since the 23rd, but they live out in the country. They have drifts over the house. Drive is about 150 feet long and it was buried under 6 feet of snot the entire length due to the trees.

TriFlyer3D: I just can't do any custom cores for a little while. Simply don't have the time. I am struggling to handle the demand of the Katana right now. I had an inventory of 20 last week and now I'm negative 5. I could not get out to get foam from my supplier in Omaha until yesterday due to the storm.

Zamfir: no shit it was a storm.

Q, anybody,
What temp do you put your iron on for adhering lite covering to the foam core wing ? I'm ready to add some color. Or maybe I should ask: Q, what is the max temp that EPS/covered wing can handle. Done a destructive characterization and determined melting point?

Should I seal the leading edges of with anything to keep from peeling off?

I don't know the actual temp. I suggest just starting low and start working up to the point where the stuff sticks on. I mostly use a regular cloths iron when applying other covering to the planes and mine is set just under "silk" :lol:

cool!
I just tried some solite at 220 on depron, seemed to stick pretty well, didn't melt anything, if it falls off, I'm just back to ground zero.....

you can make any covering stick better with a light mist of foam safe spray adhesive (on the foam) before you iron.. let it dry for 10min before ironing

Spaz, Do you know if the 3M spray adhesive is foam safe?

It is foam safe, it is what i have used to sheet foam cores with and also to build foam wings.

The glue itself is foam safe, but the propellant is not. You want to spray from a little bit of distance to allow the propellant to evaporate in the air.

There's a generic of the 3M 77 that they sell at Wal-Mart it's called Duro All-Purpose Spray Adhesive.It contains n-Hexane,Pro-pane,N-Butane and Acetone.I use it for a substitute for the 3M and get just as good results.

The best thing is it holds just as well and is about a 1/3rd of the cost of 3M.

I just tried it just like Q. said and it worked,if you put it on heavy it will disolve foam,I just tried it.

Just a suggestion.
