Re: Cheapest country for lessons?

And I forgot to add: Feb-March since we want to escape our never-ending winter... If you do decide on SA, try be here early in Feb (December to end Feb is best for wind). That's also when the King of Air event is. March starts to go quiet in terms of crowds and wind, so nice time to travel. Dirt ch...

Re: Foam cored wings (another way)

I'll try to find my older molds and make up a pert to show the Easter egg method. There are simple ways to make up the leading edge and I'll try to find the rest of the Mylar sets for a small wing and make up a set. That would be first prize, thanks Kevin. Maybe just a few hand sketches would help ...

Have a look on the video ~ 2.17min. You see very few holes on a very large surface. All are hand made after ...

Re: Foam cored wings (another way)

The tube you use is a garden type with a soft inlay. If you have a regular vakuum the tube will be squeezed together an your vakuum dies. I use 6mm hydraulic tubes on a ex fridge motor. Thanks for the suggestions Kosta. The hose I use is very thick and stiff - not the normal garden hose. It handles...

Re: Foam cored wings (another way)

If your guy will mill a wing core, how about getting him to mill the mold halves... I might do this to start experimenting with molds. Can't figure out how a mold process will not result in either heavy (solid core) and/or the same flush-out issue. Still trying to visualize the "easter egg" process...

Foam cored wings (another way)

First off, thanks to everyone posting their tips and processes on this forum. I’m learning a lot. Here’s one way to build foam cored wings that works for me. I’ve only built about 5 of these (2 backs and 3 fronts), so definitely no expert. This is what works for me with my limited skills. What I tri...
