Yes, the HXT kits are peanuts, and after a try or two, easy to fix the 900's. I still haven't figured out how to open the 500's.
It's always the second gear from the top so I have quite a collection of the others. Sometimes I change the whole set, others, I just change the #2.
But as yet, I haven't found any kits for the other brands, especially Turnigy metal gear. Any ideas?

Very interesting idea about using parchment paper.
 I'm still thinking there's a better hinge idea to come. I do like a mechanical hinge because sooner or later my DW tape hinges shear off, even with the hotglue line.
Because we use foam to build, pin hinges only work for me if you reinforce them top and bottom. The flat mini hinges eventually pop off.
I'm working on it, maybe we can patent it .

How would you compare this plane to a Funcub?

Thanks, Dwayne, Gary has a good hand on the camera.
I didn't know he had also done one on Terry the pterodactyl on the club roof for YouTube.  My wife was in stitches over it.
Sadly, Terry has gone to the great boneyard in the sky (except for his body in the garage , so I might recreate him this winter with a better wing design.)
As for Eddie, he continues to amuse everybody that sees him. I'm just trying to figure out a camera location on him.

Fabulous video, thanks so much,
Reg and Eddie

A recent issue of the MAAC magazine described this in detail, a club has already done it.

I don't know. looks tricky to me and you know I don't have much patience. There must be a better way. I like pin hinges, but they will pull out in time. I'm going to try different things till I get it right. Being a crasher, I need something strong. The fibreglass hinges tend to pull away.

The most durable has been the hot glue hinge, but also tricky to get right.

As for the foam seminar, that would be fun if you can find more than 3 interested parties. Count me in.

Try Gord! I wouldn't mind trying it myself if I could get some good EPP material.

I've always found indoor to be too much of a melee, and I need the outdoor space for my limited skills! But creative thinking anyway, congrats.
I guess I'll stick to flying wings and deltas with stabilizers, as they can take more wind.
 So trump thinks there's no global warming?

Que pasa?

I did merge those two planes and with a little tweaking of wing incidence, it produced a fun powered glider which i was able to thermal one day, but I'm looking to move up to a Radian for more performance.
My plane has a camera slot right up front.

Can you post the executive summary?
