Thanks,

Thanks Paul. Sucks what happened. Is the image attachment thing fixable on this site, where we can upload them, rather than having to link to an external site? Suggest we upgrade if it's doable, and willing to pitch in to do so.

I see the line for the Mojo is getting rowdy already :shock: I'm standing pat in the line for the 60 version. Got a Saito 91 that runs like a sweetie, just needs some MOJO.

Your in demand Pauly, enjoy your celebrity,......

Ok enough niceties, where's the BIRDS! :twisted:

Sweet. Are you gonna have one of these done for Nashville?

I'd really like to try her out. I promise I'll be nice, and just feel her up a little, and leave the hard core gang banging for the rest of the bros.

Are you going to let Gator pick out her dress?

Is there any good way to make a removable wing on a profile this size with out going to a 2 piece? AHEM wing that is.

you know, I always thought it would be easier to make the rear of the fuse detach rather than 2 piece wings, but nobody does it, and I got a big van and have no need. with rear mount servos, just unplug and pull off fuse aft of the wing (where they break anyway) with c.f. tube it would be an easy mod, or just install 1/4" thick spruce uprights inside built up fuse, drill top and bottom at an angle, bolt on w/ 2 nylon bolts; when dumped it would only shear bolts, and be easy to transport. think it's do-able?

Interesting thoughts.... I'm gonna have to do something on the 60 sized version... Nobody likes the idea of a one piece bird that big.... I was thinking of doing the wing like the Fiberclasics bird do with a piece from each wing indexing in a pocket in the other..

I think the plug-in design will grow in popularity if done right. There are so many of us that need the extra room to get to the field. There are some bigger profile planes out there that have a very simple 2 piece wing set up. I think the 40-60 size market would grow larger with that as an option.

I have seen many of our club members get a profile, then sell it because they can't get it to the field in their smaller cars or truck seat, without a fight. Seems that the fix would be an easy addition to a set of plans. Then the builder can choose. Just show the option and let hte builder add the mod if needed.

I hope to come up with something myself, when I build my next Buritto. :shock:

I think it would be pretty light and easy to cut the fuse tube in half behind the wing, drill 2" from either end and glue 1/8" dowl crossways to keep main dowel from sliding (makes main dowel replaceable in case broken in crash) slide halves back together on 4" piece of dowel and bolt top and bottom. main reason I favor this is that I don't like to compromise my spar. it gets pretty heavy to get the required strength on a 2 piece wing. a 4" piece of dowel and 2 4-40 bolts oughta be lighter, And I don't think there is near as much stress on the fuse joint as there is on the wing joint.
I guess I will have to do it sometime, but again, I don't fly bigger than 40 size stuff, and have 2 big old vans.

isn't it simpler and lighter to make a 1-piece wing that attaches to the fuse? only problem is wiring, you either have to hook up 3 servos or 2, depending on where the rx is.

but if you make the fuse just wide enough for a slim RX, you could place it in the fuse without trouble.

im thinking about the way that full-fuse mid wings do a removable 1-piece wing - where there's a false fuse floor permanently attached to the wing bottom - except having 3-4 tabs on the wing that notch into the fuse and then have nylon bolts holding them in.

i have an rcgroups thread about this somewhere...

Damn, I was looking for an excuse to buy a trailer.

"Honey, I built this plane, but it's too big to fit in the wrangler. It'll fit in your cherokee, but I can only take this one plane to the feild. If we buy a trailer I'll never have to borrow your vehicle again."

my sig ultimate had bolt on wings and it was always rickety; that's probably why it broke so bad the first deadstick. maybe if the fuse had a wide saddle on it with tri stock?
