Jim... Caleb and I unwrapped your care package last night. My Quality Inspector noticed a few things:

1) Your 4" Kavan tires are not winter tires, so they are prohibited in Quebec Good news is the tires are great in the wet!!

2) Caleb thinks we should try a different glue mixture. Wood glue and Ultimate glue

3) Are you sure your A123 packs worked before you shipped them? It's like they are shorted

Cheers

Re: 32.5% Carden Baby Yak - BBT! - Build Thread

Well, I opened up the drawings tonight and started to plan out the build.

For those that are familiar with Carden fuses and have never seen a Yak design, this plane is significantly different from the other designs...

* The fuse sides are not very tall at all (not much taller than the depth of the wing)
* Huge rudder compared to the Extras / Edges
* Super only nose on it and the motorbox is long
* A lot wider than the Extras / Edges
* Lots more detail on the shaping to get the rounded look (great... my wife is going to love all the balsa dust from this baby!!)

Jim wanted me to build it so that tank was centered over the CG, but ->

* If we put it above the wing tube, the tank will protrude into the canopy (nasty)
* It won't fit below... not enough space

Looks like it has to go in front as per stock design!

Re: 32.5% Carden Baby Yak - BBT! - Build Thread

Trev,

In the Pic 1 and 2 of the tank pics what is behind the Landig Gear plate/ Is that balsa or ply? Could it be carved out and the tank sit at an angle with te front up higher then the back so it clears the tube and the LG plate?

Would a 750cc tank clear everything? Would a 750cc give enough runtime for a Sportsman sequence with a safety margin?

Just thinking out loud here.

Behind the landing gear plate is 1/4" balsa, but even if I carved it out there wouldn`t be enough room. A 750cc tank would fit, but I`d be a little worried about runtime... I`d hate to see you cut your fuel too close and have a deadstick (think windy day and having to make a few passes to line up for landing).

All things considered, I think we`re better to just keep the tank placement stock... it has seemed to work in other Cardens for years now!


Cheers

Trev

Funny Dave... thanks for the friendly push (just what my wife wanted)!! I`ve been working on finishing my 42% Dalton, but good news is that I start Jim`s Yak tonight... pictures to be posted late tonight!

Jim... more good news on your side... Jen and the boys are heading back to Pembroke for a visit with her family for the week of March 9. I have to work, but the evenings will be dedicated to your build, so we should see a framed up fuse by the 13th!!!


Cheers

Trev
