Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Moving right along.. I am posting pics of things that are a little vague since these builds assume prior building experience (which I have) but that some may not.
Since this plane has no diagonal bracing on the fuse sides, I used butt joints which are weak but placed them right on the braces (which are strong, see). I also made the fuse balsa sides an eighth of an inch longer to go over the trimmed F2 former so sanding the sides when bevelling for the cowl is easier and covering sticks better.
I used epoxy to glue the sticks which holds way better than cyan if not building right on the balsa sides. Then Ultimate glue to glue the finished and sanded stick framework to the skins. Now its all drying and tonight I will glue in the stab, wing canopy hardpoints.

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

I should mention that great care at this point is taken to assure that everything is staight, so I use the straight channel and spaced the sticks 1/8 away from this using some scraps of balsa so there is some balsa overlap on the edges at this point. This will all be trimmed flush later. The second frame is butted to the first with another space ( you can see the plastic orange squares which have a nice wide base) and then the whole mess is weighted down and excess glue wiped as it oozes out which can make a mess with poly glues (and adds weight..right Trev?

Looks great Lee!!

Lots of requests here (sorry ), but can you please also weigh both sides (together) for me, once they're trimmed?

Lots of analysis going on here - nothing but drool and a racing mind, LOL!!!

Cheers

Trev

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

I'll weigh them once they get trimmed and sanded with the ply bits added.

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

No time for slackin, gotta get this baby setup so I can work on the wings. I'm going to my good buddy Ted's place on december 9th to vacuum bag the wings
First pic shows the fuse side with some bits and pieces. Weight is on the scale..I'm happy
Next few pics are a mock up to mark and cut out the wing and stab phenolics. I secured the Mbox and placed one side up and using the mbox as a guide, pushed the phenolic to the inside of the fuse to mark it and cut out. Perfect alignment! Will do the same to the other side and the stab holes too.
The light ply plates will be glued in after the sides are on so I have again perfect alignment without having to ream anything. Should take very little to zero the tubes and glue them in.
Last pic shows the balsa overlap to the F3 ply piece.

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Forgot to mention that I am going with a stab root rib with two screws and a anti rotation pin like on many other designs. These will be CF and light ply in the center. Notice I used the stab hardpoint ply for the front since it wont be used in the stab itself and built it up to 3/8 with some light ply. The template you see is just for drawing out the CF one I will make later.
So the hardpoints for the 6/32 bolt tee nuts is now under the light ply template you see in the final pic and on the front the anti rotation pin will be above and the tee nut below..capiche?

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Well finally got the fuse off the table..WOOHOO! The braces and Durant gussets took longer than expected but she is stiff and staight (something I admire more and more as I get older...just sayin!) .

First pic is of the gussets which add tremendous strength with little weight, and the second is the fuse levelled and getting the phenolics aligned...never have too many levels LOL!
I took a high shot for better perspective..this baby is long.
I will be working on the wings soon as they have to be ready shortly for sheeting.
