General Discussion / Top Flite, sign of the times?
« on: July 27, 2018, 08:15:28 PM »
Looks like Top Flite is discontinuing it's line of kits, I guess most modelers or should I say flyers are choosing arfs now, sad to see but at least people are still flying.

General Discussion / Need some OD Green solartex

Please I need to rebuild the wing center sections of my DVIII as it had a bit of a rough take off.  >:( :'( :-[ 
Thank you

My first solo flight with the DVIII, she takes off straight and true, fly's rock solid with no bad habits at all, when Rolly did the first maiden she went nose over on the landing so I removed a bit of weight from the nose, don't know if it did anything but it flairs in for a perfect landing. I think I'll keep her.  ;D  8) :P
Thank you to Glen for the great video.  ;D

Plans, Projects, Building and Flying Tips / Fokker DVIII Build Maiden!!
« on: October 28, 2017, 08:28:05 PM »
I won a 1/3rd scale Fokker DVIII at this years giant scale and have decided to build it. I decided to do the wing first as if I screw this part up there's no need to  :P  The  DVIII has a unique wing in that it is flat on the top and tapers on the bottom so it is recommended to build the wing upside down I used an old hokey stick and some weights to keep things aligned while gluing, hey it worked. lol  :P  other than that it's pretty straight forward, the wing is split in the middle so you build one panel at a time, so far so good but man this thing is big.   :o :o 8) :P ;D

 Lost the elevator , haven't tested it yet so don't know if it was the servo or receiver.  I got it back to the runway and ohhhh sooooo close to bringing her in but alas she stalled and knocked the gear and nose off, oh well a couple of day's in the shop and she'll be good as new. But CRAP DRATS RATS AND FUDGE!!!!  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
