Hi Andrew

We'll be meeting at the same restaurant tomorrow, we're planning to change location but they are renovating and will only be open at the beginning of Dec.
See you around noon.

Re: Blue Foamie

Steph Morin, who is a member of our club (GSM) gave me a good tip today, I think it's an excellent idea and I'd like to pas it on, it has to do with making "z" bends for CF push rods.
I bought straight pins at a Dollar Store, cut the heads off and the sharp end for safety and made "z" bends, the pins I bought are .030in diam. and 1inch in length, they are softer than piano wire but I'm sure very strong for foamies. I use 1mm CF and 1/16in shrink tubing and a drop of CA before using the heat gun on the tubing.
On many occasions, I've had a hard time to locate the right piano wire, that will help tremendeously.
Now comes the good news, the package I bought contains 1000 pins and only cost $1.00, which is enough for 250 foamies, I'm now ok for a few weekends

Re: Blue Foamie

GSM update Nov 22.
yakityyak came up from Milton to have breakfast and show us how it is done with Gaston's foamie.


Gaston giving it a try. His rolling circles are getting impressive. Maybe by summer we can get him to do one with his turbo prop Yak.

Re: Blue Foamie

GSM update part 2

Steph arrived with a new design he created. Similar to the Bug. This thing flies perfectly.


Steph and I even did a bit of combat. The streamer had very little effect on Steph's plane. It was a lot of fun. Two of us on a combat mission with 10 others in the sky. I still have no idea how we avoided collisions with the others.
I lost.


Another new design.


My son having a rare good moment. His plane suffered today.

Re: Blue Foamie

Landing gear repairs

If you have to replace a broken CF landing strut or axle on your landing gear, just heat the aluminum with a heat gun and pull on the 1.5 mm with a pair of pliers, it should come off easily. Insert a new piece and add a drop of CA.
