Building techniques and tricks used by pattern flyers
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have picked up a few construction tricks / techniques of the pattern guys I knew but I am looking for a resource of the the various building techniques and tricks used by pattern flyers.
Can someone direct me to a web site or book(s), etc.

Re: Building techniques and tricks used by pattern flyers
One of the better sites on the net I know of is this
There was once a book on building a pattern plane, but I have not heard in a long while if they are still producing it. One time I think it was available through Central Hobbies.
Also if you can get a hold of old K-Factors (the publication of the NSRCA) that some long time pattern fliers keep around, they often have decent tips buried in the pages if you are willing to look.
Lots of the info is just sitting around in peoples brains, not written anywhere. Going to a pattern contest is one good way to get some of that knowledge.
