Gah, haven't even been home from houston for 12 hours yet, and I've already had to start repairing an old omp that was down. I already did a bunch of repair work, and the nose was really broken up. I used ca as best as I could, then smeared some poly glue around in all the cracks and weighted it down. Hopefully that will get everything fixed back up. I need to redo the sheeting on the fuse, and I was thinking about using contest 4-6# grade sheeting. Anyone ever try that yet on this bird? Just curious if it will be strong enough...

well, let it dry over night.... and it came out pretty darn good. The nose hardly flexes any more. Before I could just about bend it into a U. A generous amount of poly glue, some water, and the glue soaked all the way through to the other side while it was drying. Just about ready to start resheeting the wing, then on to covering. Now I just need a good motor :roll:

Yea, and right under that is the java book, and below that is the discrete math books. I'm glad I saved all those collage text books, they sure come in handy still :roll:

well, fuse is sheeted now. Picked up some covering the other day, just gotta work on covering the fuse. The wing covering looks like shit right now, but I'm tempted to just leave it for another day, that way I can get out and fly with it this weekend :D

looks good, but someone should ship one off to Mike Lavallee of Killerpaint.com..........

Have him do something like this:




would kick ass to have it painted from tail to nose on the bottom so that it looks like you've set your plane on fire while hovering, and nose to tail on the top/sides to look like the engine has blown up during normal flight....
