ORDER NOW before November 14th - Blue Foam Warwing Kits
« on: October 23, 2018, 09:52:04 am »
For those interested, I am taking orders now for the blue foam Warwing Kits, similar to those kits offered last year. (Maximum of two kits per TEMAC member.)

In order to stem inflation, kits will remain at last season's costs of $10 each.  The kits will be delivered at the January 9th winter meeting, only to those TEMAC members who have ordered one or two. [That's when I will recover my costs and you can start building your Warwing(s) in the new year.]

In order to qualify for this limited time offer, you must post your desired order by replying to this topic prior to November 14th. (This offer is not available in stores and orders for kits will not be taken in any other manner.)
 

Each kit includes:
- three 1/2 inch blue foam board fuselage and wing pieces (cut and ready for gluing together)
- the wing is prefabricated (one piece) and reinforced with fibreglass tape as necessary
- elevons are installed and hinged with double sided medical taped hinges
- a 2 inch by 2 inch hobby aircraft quality plywood motor mount
- sufficient velcro for cross securing your battery to the aircraft
- plywood pieces for servo screw mounts (should you desire this method of securing servos)
- 2 control horns for elevons
- zip ties for securing your ESC and combat ribbon
- fuselage reinforcing plywood (Moroccan grade quality only)
- 4 pieces of triangular stock for firewall mounting/securing to aircraft  (Moroccan quality only)

To complete the Warwing you will require:
•   5 minute or 15-minute epoxy,  (if 15 minute epoxy is selected, you will require more patience) – also paraphernalia for mixing and applying epoxy, including waxed paper or something similar to prevent glue getting on your work surface)
•  hobby knife for fine trimming of foam
•   electric motor and ESC, mounting screws, nuts and bolts, blind nuts  (your choice)
(examples of electric motor include - E Flite, Rimfire .10, Turnigy G10, alternatively any brushless motor and ESC from a foamy aircraft, such as a Parkzone, Eflite, Durafly, FMS, or similar 1100 to 1200 mm wingspan aircraft)
•   2 servos and mounting screws or alternatively glue the servos to the wing if preferred
•   2 pushrods and clevises for servo to elevon connections.
•   receiver and 2 sided tape for securing same
•   flight battery is necessary for flying, finding the balance point and determination of battery placement (typically 3 cell 1800 to 2200 mah is used)
•   you also may require servo extensions.

Thank you to those members of TEMAC who sacrificed participated in racing or combat with me and others during this past season.

New Targets are desired for this coming 2019 flying season.  ;)

Well I just went to the dollar store to buy some foam board, so that I can build a mock-up of my warwing Space Shuttle Orbiter.

What else could you come up with?

Only 9 kits ordered so far. 

November 14th is creeping up! Ensure you place your order if you want one or two blue foam Warwings for next season.

I am going to get the blue foam to make the kits. 

Thanks to all who have ordered their 'new targets' for next warwing combat and race season.

NOTE:  Jim ( @Canuke ) has successfully built and flown a Dollar Store foam board laminated version of the current warwing design.  Quite durable.  This version of the warwing may be the way to go in the future. Right Glenn ( @electroflyer )?
