Then the formers & tail feathers... :cheer:

:woohoo: Success = Square + Straight

  • Scrap strips of balsa being used to strengthen as shown
  • The images tell the story ;)

NOTES:
  • Position F2 in such a way that your lipo battery pack will fit in the fuselage - prior to gluing it down!
  • The top decking between the firewall & F2 needs to be made into a battery compartment hatch.

Included in building the main wing would be to prepare a spot for the aileron servo...

I did not sheet the 4 ribs in the center piece of the wing - you may want to do this.

Before gluing down the top of the trailing edge - remember to make sure the wing tips have been sanded as per the photos.

Remember as you continue with the build ...

ADD LIGHTNESS always :woohoo:

B)
Building the Wing of the Mini Ugly Stick is real easy ...

Pin your plan to a piece of soft board (pin board) and cover it with "Glad Wrap"...

The images below are fairly self explanatory and should guide you as you tackle this first phase of your Build... ;)

  • Pin your bottom Main Spark (ply) & bottom section of the trailing edge (balsa) to the plan as shown.
  • Test fit the ribs & make sure the ribs are sitting square in vertical & longitudinal direction/s.
  • Glue ribs in place - making sure to work straight
  • The trailing edge side of the ribs all the way to the bottom main spar should sit flat on your building board.

Next...
  • Fit & Glue the top main spar (ply) and leading edge (ply)
  • Keep the ribs square & straight
  • Use off-cut pieces of balsa to do a aileron servo tray as shown on the plan.
  • Complete the wing as shown in the images & in the second post on the wing build...

The first of many EEZi Build KITS (by www.rcmodeller.co.za) have just been completed.
I am in the process of Tissue Covering the 550mm wingspan beauty and will post images & video of the Maiden Flight soon.
These Laser Cut KITS will be for sale via our Online Shop (see the "link" above).

PS
Watch this space as we are planning to do about 20 KITS in the next 12-18 months.
