Re: Hoaye F-18 build

The decals turned out pretty good, self adhesive label sheet printed on the inkjet printer and then clear coated with Krylon Satin finish. So, cosmetically, it is done. Just some internal items to mount and it'll be ready for its maiden.

Re: Hoaye F-18 build

Even the fin crest turned out pretty good. I was thinking of redoing the rudder checker board, the white label material does not adhere as well as the clear, so will eventually paint the rudders white and apply the black check pattern on a clear label.

Ya know, this being able to post only one picture at a time is really silly, I hope they can fix this glitch soon for us IPad users.

John
Nice job on the finish. From the photos you would not think that it is a foam model. Looking forward to your flight report with your EDF setup. Is your intent to bungee launch or hand launch? What did the final all up weight ready to fly come out at? Good luck on the maiden flight.

Re: Hoaye F-18 build

With that wide fuse, it will be a bungee launched model. The hook is already in the model. The wieght, well it was just over 6 lbs before the colour was applied and I sprayed it fairly lightly so hoping for an all up wieght to be well under my target of 7 lbs. but I have to mount a couple of small plywood plates inside so I can attach Velcro to hold the reciever and the final location for the reciever battery. I'll wiegh it after that.

Re: Hoaye F-18 build

It would Tom, but I'm up in the Huntsville area at a cottage for the weekend. I want to get more stick time on the Habu before trying the maiden. I'm kinda rusty.
