Getting there with the ASW15...
Just have to put the servos on he wings, and hide the servos on the canopy, and ready to go !
Hopefully ready for this week end meeting for the maiden flight  :D

Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Happy Days

Well done Fred, what other maidens will you be bringing with you? :lol:

Sunday's looking like a gentle 20Km/h against the north slope, and with some sunshine we may even catch a couple of passing thermals.

Looking forward to a nice easy days flying :D

Thanks Keith  :D
Here are a few more...





I hope to have it finished tomorrow... But not too sure about that, I don't want to rush it...
Still have the 4 servos to glue / setup in the wings... Hopefully, that will be done tonight, ready for setup tomorrow...

Another maiden, might be the Crystal... But we'll see.. I might bring it to setup, but I would like loads of lift for the first flight.. After, we'll see, but 12Kgs, that need a little bit of planning, well, just a bit more  :P  [-o<
Just have to ask Benoit to confirm the CofG to me to be sure now...

And the Crystal with the ASW...






Almost 10mtrs of glider in this photo  :D

:lol:  No, not even !
That was my 10 minutes of freedom after work, before changing the baby, and put the girls to bed...

Negociation is everything  :P  :D

Corr, what a lot you got!

Don’t rush it Fred. I’ve rushed the finish on my Phase……………..and it shows! :cry: :oops:  
 It wont be seen when the plane is in the sky, but when it’s on the ground it doesn‘t look any where near as good as my first one……………

Ah well, I’ll remember to take my time in future. :roll:

Don’t think there is going to be “loads of lift” this weekend. It might be better to leave the Crystal until another occasion. (Save loading it all into you car)

They look like some sweet machines Fred  :D  :D . Love to see them fly, but I will be in Nice from Friday for two weeks. Do you know of any good model glider clubs from around there.

Hey Fred,

those are beautifull gliders.  :clap:

The modern soarer are not my cup of tea, but they have a special sort of elegance.

All the best for the maiden flights [-o<

Thank you all  :oops:
Ah well, now, the most important thing is to put them in the air ! Whatever happen !

For the ASW15, only managed to glue 2 servos tonight... Not sure now it's going to be ready for this week end... Next one for sure... We'll see tomorrow...

And finally, a photo of the ASH25, my modern glider winter project !
I'll post on the forum the building process, might be interresting for some !

Note the big smily face ...  :lol:





Don't know if I mentionned it already, but fuselage is from Gewalt
Profile will be an evolution of Eppler 68, E67 and E66 (very close to the HQ3.5/xx.. Sound good for thermalling and slope)

I will not go for a full house wing (flaps etc etc..) just ailerons and airbrakes, but that might change later !

Well, that looks pretty impressive! :clap:  The plane I mean, not Fred. (Although Fred can be impressive he’s certainly not very pretty………………..but this is very off topic.)

Let’s see how you did it Fred, …..probably all in one night knowing you! :D

I’d have thought you would have preferred flaps rather than airbrakes. If the lift is light a few degrees of flap could help you get it up. (Er, :oops:  :oops:  :oops:  :lol: ……..oh, never mind)

So when will we be seeing this beast in the air?

K.

p.s. Your lawn needs cutting,……..the shrubs could do with some pruning as well. .........What does Rachel do with her time anyway!

It's a good look Fred. Not quite sure what it's saying. Maybe "Oh bollox now I have to build this thing!" Or "now look what I got myself into!"

I should say nothing as I will have to cut the wings for the beast  :?  :?

Yeah, more thinking "Joe, where are fecking finished set of wings !"  :lol:  :P

I'll pass on the messages to Rachel.. She will deal with you later !  :P  :P
But sound like my next week end job alright...  :!:

Keith, for big wingspan gliders, I found that Airbrakes are much more precise and generate less unwanted effects.
Also, all profiles are not good with flaps, sometimes adding flaps can generate more problems than anything else !
I keep the wing clean and simple this time  :D

Oh, that's interesting Fred, I wasn't aware of that fact. I'd assumed that flaps would improve the lift of any wing.:?:

Thanks
