E-powered CL? That is uncommon. Cool!

I haven't flown CL in almost 40 years........

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Hello
You keep amazing me CHELLIE. I want video as your sure to get dizzy if it has been some time flying U-control.
I'm surprised that Ambroid Glue is still around. That was all I used besides epoxy in a few spots. I'll keep and eye on the build.

I Have an Idea Why dont you Build a E Power CL Plane and enter the contest Too you can buy the Wing ribs already cut out, and brodak has plans too.

Wow, The buster brings back memmories. I had one back in the early/mid 70's. Had a fox .35 on it. Flew the crap out of that thing.


Good luck on your build.

A silk and dope finish will go well with a balsa and ambroid build.

Agree, dope and foam don't mix. Don't know if ambroid and foam are comparable, they don't overlap in history.

But believe she is using balsa on this, her quote, ". . . I bought some ribs already cut out, and some balsa wood and some Ambroid Glue I won't start this build until I get My F-20 Flying."

Ok, Getting back to it I went to Hobby People yesterday, and bought some balsa strips and some econo coat covering for the wings, and I went to ace hardware and bought 2, 5/16" x 36" steel rods for the wing building jig to hold the ribs in place, I also ordered a ESC timer for the motor, That came in already, My leg and knee have been hurting me since my son accidentally pushed the top section of a small kitchen hutch on top of my left leg, its been about a month and a half since that happened, and the pain has keep me from wanting to do anything, the leg and knee is much better now, so i can get back to this project I am Cutting up the Plans and making patterns for the Fuselage, stabilizer and rudder, the ribs I can Buy already Lazar cut out, so that saves me a little work, I will post some pics of the wing soon, take care, Chellie

Sure it was an accident? LOL I have visions of Wizard of OZ. " She's Melting ! "

That CL flying is more or less an athletic event. Watched a competition and they made me dizzy just watching them spin around a pole. I could not do that. When there's multiple pilots, it's hoot. Kind of like a tribal dance.
