Love the look….
Indeed. The black portions of my 35%er Edge hatch warped the first time I had it out in the sun. Thankfully it'll still stay down with the screws, lol. It's a bit banana shaped, now.

Re: Boomerang Ranger build thread

I found a solution - an old CARF wing bag. A little trimming around the bottom, and it should do the trick!!

Re: Boomerang Ranger build thread

The big accomplishment today was getting the 2 vent lines routed and installed. The air inlets enter right in the center of the fuselage. There is no internal ducting, or bypass, so I have taken precautions to avoid having servo leads and tubing flapping around in the 150 mph breeze. The area between the wheel wells offered a nice place to install the vents. Access to install the vents and tubing was very easy.

What would also work is that silver insulation they use around hot water tanks . You can buy it in different sizes at Hone Depot and other hardware places....rather than cut up a nice wing bag ! Add some Velcro straps and bingo , the same thing , pretty much.

Re: Boomerang Ranger build thread

I tried using that stuff once, and it left grey marks all over my wings....it might have been cheap insulation..I don't know.

This wingbag is an orphan....I don't have the other half, and it has been sitting in my shop for a number of years, so there is no problem modifying it....

Re: Boomerang Ranger build thread

Have used it myself for a cheap wing bags and yes if the wings sit in it and you travel long distances the silver can rub off. Your single wing bag will work fine . A while ago I saw someone with a sunshade that clipped over the nose and tail and over to each wingtip to shade the whole aircraft . Looked factory made and did a great job . Not sure how that would hold up if windy out though.
Keep up the great build .

Re: Boomerang Ranger build thread

Detail stuff.....installing the bubble trap, and routing the fuel lines - including the shut off valve and fuel filter.smoke system is installed, with the pump tucked neatly behind the main tank. Just waiting for the turbine. Once that is bolted in, I can check the balance to see where the batteries need to go....

What experience do you have with these bubble traps? How does it fail as you claim?
