    Hopefully you do not have to many daughters or else you are going to busy for a while.

    You do mighty fine work. Really like the doors with the grain at a 45!

  4. Thanks brother. The 45 on the doors was a little more work. But it added a lot of visual interest.

    So I got the 87" chippy plans. They are Bob Nelitz 1/5 scale plans. Fun to look at, but no way I'd ever scratch build something like this with that huge bubble canopy.

    Chipmunks are not easy to build and a 87 inch Chipmunk is a small plane because the Chipmunk wing is long. The only one I would build is the Pepsi one with the wide cowl because the military one is very narrow difficult to fit an engine in. And yes you have to be able to get the canopy. They are great fliers.

    Bought some replacement servo cases to rebuild the 7, 9380's in my 105 Laser. 400+ hard flights on the servos and they're finally ready for some reworking. But the wind was howling 20-25mph and it was drizzling constantly and temps were in the 40's- for this SoCal boy that works outside, that was a no-go on getting the servos out of the airplane o_O

    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    Why do you replace the cases? Just wondering :confused:.

    The brass bushing for the center pin begins to wallow out the pocket it is molded into inside of the servo case. This causes some slop in the geartrain since the center gears can move just ever so slightly instead of being fixed in place.

    Guys just a quick question, what is the difference between a DLE and DLA. Spoke to a person at the field was claiming a lot of things about the DLE.
