I recently put together a blue foam Click. Awesome flyer. Great slow aerobatics indoors.
I skipped the landing gear, haven't needed it yet and used pull pull on elevator and rudder.
Thanks Gaston for the tips, and Dennis Pratt for the templets.

I'm glad to hear that you like it, did you use hot glue and how much did it weigh if it's not too much trouble. It certainly made our winter easier to endure. Thanks for letting us know and as you said, thanks to Dennis, it's all his fault, we're having a blast up here.

I do have a maac that i use sometimes go and fly as a guest at a club down the road about 5 minutes drive away, but it cost about $150 to join. And my dads way to busy and i dont fly glow/nitro YET.

P.S if you see the second video at the last 1-2 minutes the aileron linkage fell off so i had the slowest roll rate and hard to keep hovering with out torqueing
Hi
I looked at both videos and couldn't see anything wrong, I like the fact that you build them yourself and you also fly very well, thanks for the heads up on your Maac and the local club.

You did pretty good, even though it was a bit broken, your reaction was appropriate and no damage done. How are you at rolling circles, don't tell anyone but I can't do that yet but I keep trying.

I'm fine at rolling circles, harriers but on my rolling loops im scared to do it near the ground. Keep trying it took me over 5 months just to get it down.

That's awesome, you're way ahead of me, I better practice a lot more.
I'll try more rolling circles at the field, there are no walls like the gym, I'll probably hit the darn ground, I'll let you know how I make out.

Used nothing but hot glue. Carbon fiber wing supports were 3/8 carbon tube split lengthwie with a knife. You can make them any thickness. Cheap and easy. Hinges are packing tape, 1/2 strips.
All up weight RTF is 170 Grams.
The next one will have depron elev., ail. ,and rudder. Also I picked up some carbon fiber for the supports. The blue foam control surfaces weigh 22 grams, the depron ones weigh 10. The 170 gram one has no bad habits. can't see the lighter one being much better but I'm sure I will be pleasantly surprised.
What weight have you been getting?

Hi Bill
Our AUW has been around 180 grams without doing anything special, on a couple occasions I've made the elevator and rudder out of Depron to lighten the tail but when you fly with another 5 or 6 guys at the same time in a gym, the tail section becomes very vulnerable, they don't do it on purpose, sh_t just happens. I find that even after having a few mishaps and adding quite a bit of glue, they still fly extremely well. Thanks for the information and happy flying. By the way , say hi to Dennis for me.
