Did you get the pictures Gary? That was cool. That motor you could hear throughout the place.
There was a thousand of them little H9 things flying around. I got caught behind the concord and Cargo plane with the 4 engines counter rotating draft. My MX2 I thought the battery's were dieing quick. Till they went pass and I felt the air from them.

Your on the right track with 6 & 9 mil for outdoor Tomas. I think Mike is also talking of the Bracing as Donatas does in his Ailerons and Elevators.

It does help a lot for aileron flex with that foam lightened. But then go to Braden Chittys VPP Video and slow video down. Take a look how far the tail is behind plane twisted in rollers. They all do it. They are foam...LOL

STLAV8R That's special order for you John the Plus 1 with steel reinforcement for flying again after burying to ground...LOL

HAHA I will have many options with each kit. One will be the extra use of aileron carbon truss. I will make it an option, and the extra carbon will be included with the kit. For my taste, I just keep the ailerons solid. I like the way it flies. Just for gits and shiggles... I put 2 jr ds188's on my 3.8oz (which is now 4.1 with the other servo) TAS Eagle out of depron aero... It is sooooo much fun to have absolutely no blowback! hahahaha favorite eagle yet!

I have this yellow and black Yak sitting on my bench I kinda need to sell...I really don't want to considering how clean the Yak 55 logo came out on the milled side but I do need the money to get to Texas in march This is a feather milled(bottom hinged) complete kit, the owner of the model should have no issues building it in between 4-4.5 if they use the right equipment and the right amount of glue. Please PM me if you are interested, you can see Waynes build thread at: http://www.flyinggiants.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=70635

Hay guys. I have noticed a lot of the foamies that they have a frame type look about them??
I was thinking it was maybe the paint and someone getting fancy... But I've noticed a lot of them have this look about them.
So can someone tell me if this is just paint? Or are you guys making foamies with frames now??

Those are what they call "milled". They are milling away a lot of the foam (about half way through) leaving a frame like look and making them lighter.

Or you could fix the issues forever and strip the case off a 65 hb you can easily hit the 7-8g mark with this servo.

I've always experienced a lot of blowback when trying to do stationary flat spins and using a 3154, Ive also stripped a 3154 snaping a 4.5 oz yak into a hover

very true! some might say that were not saving half the airframe weight because we are leaving some edges and patterns un milled, but we are going 2/3rds depth! My milled TAS Foamies depron aero 34" eagle weighed the same as a milled depron airframe before it was milled! After i finished, It left the foam weight at 20g! It weighs 4.0oz with 4 servos and battery! Im running 2 jr ds188's and 2 hs35hd's!

there isnt much of a weight difference between milling 1/3, 1/2 or 3/4; But there is a huge strength difference between milling 1/3, 1/2 and 3/4 of the way through, the 1/3 milled in much stronger than the 3/4 milled. Most of your weight savings is actually coming from removing the outer skin of the foam. The middle of the foam is actual like an air pocket and doesnt contain much weight.
