BIG models!

I just put 2 pics from the Slanic saltmine of beautiful, big, unlimited 'microfilm' models in my album of F1D pics. The models were built by Aurel Popa and Zoltan Sukosd. I think they may? be flying them at Santa Ana in California this weekend.

Welcome Nick! I hope we can share information and inspiration by using this service. Too bad that Microsoft chosed to shut down msn groups!

Nice to see your serious wood cutting machine. I could use some good C-grain for making F1L prop blades and sticks and boom for F1D!

Thanks Sven. This site is much better than MSN groups and I hope it helps many indoor flyers to get better.

I will send more details of my indoor wood soon. I took the pics of the machine for a paper on woodcutting that will be published in the 2009 NFFS Symposium Report.

Hi Nick,

I just read what you wrote about your high quality balsa production, and I will spread the word to the people here in Linköping! We are actually searching for good prop/fuselage c-grain balsa at the moment, so this is really good news! I suppose we will make arrangements with the others here in Sweden and order together.

Best regards,

Hi Nick,
I changed my job two years ago. Don't have enough time to make the model. But I need therapy now. My job is very stressful.

Turkish indoor modelers are sluggishness Since more than three years. No competitions or no meeteng.

two months ago I bought new tools and some materials from Tim Goldstein's and Ray Harlan's shop. Rubber stripper, balsa stripper, film for cover, glue applicator, tungsten wire, boron etc. For f1L- F1M and especially F1D :)))

I started again indoor modelling. make the model will be good to me.
I think I will need your help again Nick.

best regards

Hi Nick,

After having built another motorstick that is not straight enough I would like to know wwhat kind of glue you  recommend .  I think that someone in Britain (Bob Baily ? )  uses Uhu Por. Can you help me?

I am still trying to find  out whether Dieter Siebenmann´s  FID-design with the small elevator is good. So far my test flights have shown that it is not better than the usual design with the large levator. I have now changed the model a bit and put the CG at the 45% position. a bit forward. I am going to testfly it tomorrow.


Best wishes
