The stock gear just came back from powder coating. I've got a local company here that can powdercoat the gear in black or white for $10.00 each and can turn it around next day!

The tail gear is the WhiteRose carbon.

It's now on it's legs!!!!

Here's a picture of the inside of the fuse with the belly pan cut out and trussing installed.

The weight savings using this Steve Johnston technique is around 4.5oz on these 43%ers and it's all in the tail, which is what we need to offset that light DA170 and long pipes!

Next step is to close off the front of the belly with 1/4" stock and then I'll move onto the servo bays for the rudder...

Re: 126" Carden Extra 260 w/DA170 RE3

I had to get my sunglass to look at them shinny wheels. I didn't realized that polishing was an option, just thought they were all pulished so i said gimme the polished ones. LOL. Don't tell me what the extra cost was for the blinging things thanks.

The polishing is $20.00 extra but worth it IMO!!!

I`ll have to check the credit card statement when it comes in to verify the cost, but I think yours came to $140US including the polishing! That`s less than the cost of a single high end servo these days, so consider it cheap!!!

After you tally up the cost of these 43%ers, the $140US for wheels is like rounding!!! - it doesn`t take long to spend 5-digits on these bad-boys!! (both myself and Jack D can attest to that!!)

Cheers

Trev

The cost creeps up ever so quick

But these BBT Cardens are worth every cent.

Enjoy Jack M. and let Trevor bling away

Re: 126" Carden Extra 260 w/DA170 RE3

Here's a few pictures of the 1/4" balsa stock glued to F2 and sanded to the contours of the fuse sides.

The twin rudder servo bay is also complete on the belly of the tail. This will be an inline push-pull system with a custom made carbon fiber control horn on the bottom of the rudder... same thing I did for Jim Daly's 32.5% Baby Yak only twin servos in line. The servo bay is just large enough for twin Hitec 7950 servos, which is what Jack will use here!

Re: 126" Carden Extra 260 w/DA170 RE3

Before I get into the turtledeck and rudder, I will switch gears and get the stabs sheeted, incidence set and alignment dowel pins in place while I still have access into the fuse from the top.

Phenolics have been glued in with Ultimate glue and the 43% design features a support plate at the end of the tube - nice touch

This plane will have standard servo bays (no Durant) so next step is to router out the bays and glue in the hardpoints. The placement of the bays is tight against the phenolic tube support to tie it all together. This is a little trick taken from Walt's book!!

The 30 minute epoxy is curing as I type this, so next will be preparing the stab sheeting.
