Wing measured and aligned, leading edge dowels drilled, wing hold down screw drilled and tapped, fin and elevator test fitted in place.

Next: motor and ailerons.... then covering.

Ed,

great to hear from you.

re: the "Only 500w/lb?" 

You know that was written by Andy who is a disciplined but conservative full-size Cessna 150 pilot. He usually expresses power in terms of "number of turns".   ;D

At @Frank v B's standard 500 watts/lb and a 1200 lb carriage, I'm betting on a 1600S battery pack at 100 amps! 8)

Congrats Frank!

  Very nice!
  I really like the decals as well.
  Here is my 415. a few pictures outside today. Everything is glassed except the top side of Ailerons and Flaps. I will continue when I get back from vacation. In the meantime. the epoxy can fully cure.

Installed the two aileron servos in the wing (HXT 500's) and the elevator servo in the fuse (Hitec HS 55).  Glued them in place with epoxy.  That's commitment!

The Kevlar is barely visible at the front and back end of the hatch (top of fuse).  Stabilizer and fin done and sanded.

- Sanding completed
- added a plywood triangle to spread the load for the wing bolt.  Note the grain is chord-wise.
- built the hatch.  Will add magnets later.
- second thought on the strength.  Added a strand of Kevlar at the firewall (360 degrees around the fuse) and the wing hold-down at the fuselage. Attached it with 20 minute epoxy* and wrapped it in wax paper so it will dry flat. Added two rubber bands to press it flat.  Note the colours for Andy's sake.  The original design had a fuselage doubler which I omitted.

* Bruce- ran out of 5 minute epoxy. ;)

This is my first project in Canada.

Wing span is 1000mm
Length is 800mm
Motor: 2216 880KV
Battery: 3s 2200~2700mha
Servos: 4 * 12g mini servos

Sorry for the delay in reporting.  Had technical difficulties*.


Fuse: built and ready to sand.  Made out of 3/32" sides and 1/16 top and bottom.  There is a hatch in the top front to plug in batteries.  Note: the nose was lengthened about 3/4" to accommodate the motor and the CG.  The original Cobra was designed for the Norvel .061 with the tank mount.

Please note that I used bright (uncoloured) pins this time to avoid Andy and Bruce from reading too much into this build.  Braille for my detractors. :D

Wing done and rough sanded.  A whopping 24" span or, ........ as Michael calls it....... "a stabilizer". Servo installation is next.

* the camera was somewhere in my car and took 4 days to find.  Andy enjoyed the silence. ;D
