Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth




Built a Spad Debonair with a lot of modifications:

No square PVC pipe so built a Corro Fuse
Used a RNAF Wing Design
Used Wire L/G

Build pics to follow once I get over this 200 KB rider

L/G fitted, RHS closed up, OS 55 AX fitted (coz that's all I had available!  A 46 is more than enough)

Now, a mock assembly to finalise CG before fitting wing hold-down dowels, and closing off the top cover

I make (as I guess many others too) stickers by getting pix from the net, & printing them on my ink-jet printer on photo paper. A layer of thin clear packing tape on top to fuel-proof. This is of our club, AAG (aeromodellers Asoc. Gurgaon) very beautifully designed by our club guys

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



The maiden was flown by Sandeep Jain, a very experienced flier. I goofed up - the rudder horn & the nose steering arm are on the same side relative to the servo, but out of habit I put them on opposite sides of the servo arm! No matter, Sandeep took off straight. Lovely flier, very stable, flew easily on 1/2 throttle, and with the CG well balanced made a beautiful landing. Only adjustment needed was a tad of down elev. trim

Poor Gurvinder crashed & totalled his Boomerang, so he posed for this pic with the Deb!
