@glidiator,
Great stuff, sir. Hope it inspires some newbies.
How did you decide the prop pitch?

Hi Gladiator,

Looking great. Are you going to install the landing gear and perhaps ROG? Or too my drag on the first test bed? Either way wish you the best on your maiden.
 i guess too much weight to install your capacitor power plant? Although same capacitor could power both props? Looking forward to your video.

Prop pitch and pitch station given in plan. Pitch 45 deg. Used my pitch guage to set angle.

Yes need to put in the landing gear and tail skid. Installing capacitor power not a bad idea. Maybe be okay for single prop. Two motors may be a bit too heavy for the wing area to give enough lift. Maybe enlarge the size proportionately and two props powered by single cap could work.
The article on this also suggests final trimming flights using ROG as it is a bit awkward to launch properly holding two props.

Was in Nagpur in 26th May to participate in an indoor event that was mainly held to try and set some good benchmarks in rubber power duration.
I was gradually cranking up the turns in each flight and reached a max of 2 mins 30 secs when a little carelessness caused a damage to the trailing edge spar of the wing. That put an end to further flights. Was hoping to reach atleast 4 mins but that was not to be.
Venue was a huge indoor facility- 12 badminton courts and height about 30 ft. Temperature was 45 degs and A/ or blowers could not be switched on. But was so concentrated on getting the rubber wound and ensuring the trim settings on the model were correct before each flight that Idid not feel the heat.

Hi KK
Will be more than happy to share my experience and knowledge of indoor rubber power gained over the years.
If all goes well a major indoor event is planned by AMAI at the end of this year in Pune or Nagpur. Open to all Aeromodellers. Would be happy if more participants join the event. Now is the time to start preparing and getting things ready.

Manojó see my post on the capacitor power model thread and see what happens when a little detail is missed out.

Not so much heat affecting the tape glue. More because I had used silicon lubricant for my earlier rubber power flights and fingers had traces of silicon which got rubbed on to the wing post so tape was not sticking very well.
That silicon lubricant is very slippery stuff and just a small speck is enough to make things slip.
