Bucky's Latest Project IV
Finally completed the 1/2 A Texaco Lanzo R/C Cabin Stick.
It weighs 16 ounces with the tracker transmitter installed.
Wing area is 288 square inches or 2 square feet.
It is covered with Polyspan and trimmed with Jap tissue and silkspan.
I doped 2 coats of 50% nitrate dope and 50% thinner, follow with five coats of butyrate 50 - 50 thinner.
Due to the high humidity the doped blushed.
Gene Wallock told me to use 50% retarder and 50% dope to slow down the drying.
Hope to fly it soon.
