Default Golden Skies RC - Bampf 3D (Build Thread)

To start off, the plane arrived last week, but I didn't have any time to start the build. With our plane room cleaned of other projects, it was time to start today.
The plane is a very well built airframe that comes with quality hardware. The one thing that impressed me is the craftsmanship of the airframe. I didn't even see one wrinkle in the covering while unpacking the airframe.

If you would like to view more about the plane and manufacture go to .........
http://www.goldenskiesrc.com

The first steps were to start on hinging the wings. The type of hinges for the wings are robarts and the easiest for me to put in.
Instead of using epoxy for glue, I used pacer hinge glue because I have had good luck with that before and it sets up faster than epoxy.

The basic steps were necessary for hinging.
1st. Clean hinges with alcohol
2nd. Vaseline the hinge knuckles so they don't glue
3rd. apply glue to holes and hinge posts
4th. install in wings and align so surface moves properly.

Here are some pictures of the plane from unpacking to finishing the hinging for the wings......

I was going to pick up one of these for my OS 160. The power to weight ratio is unbelievable. I just could not get past the cowl. Glad to see others know about Golden Skies. I was considering the Extra 330, but the out of box weight is not optimal for my power system. Hope the build goes well.

The shape of the cowl and fuse is defiantly different. It's kind of a design where you like it or don't. I had mixed emotions about the looks of the plane, but the more I look at it, it's growing on me.
It won't be like anything else at the field where there are 5 or 6 on the flight line. Until they see the flying characteristics of the airframe. Then they will be selling like hotcakes.

Here are more pictures of what you get in the box. The canopy was already installed on the fuse and the cowl is very interesting in design. Everything is of great quality.....

The wings are officially glued together. First step was to dimple the wood with a screwdriver, Then move on to applying the 30min. Epoxy. All is clamped into place and drying. I will have pictures up after dinner.

Ok,
The wing was finally cured enough to handle after I got home from dinner, so off to work I went. I tore off all the clamps and tape protecting the covering then test fit it on the fuse.
After words, I test fit the belly pan and marked out where the wing bolt plate & belly pan needed to be glued. I didn't attach those yet because it isn't anything structural that needs to be glued on like the tail.
Then I got the HS out and aligned it to the fuse to mark. The next step was to dimple with a screwdriver so glue would bight better to the joint.
Next step coming up is to glue it in place and wait till tomorrow for it to cure.
Here are some pictures I took......

Well today when I got home from school, I worked on the Bampf for about 2 hours and got the tail assembly glued in with 30min. epoxy.
I have to wait on servos for the plane to start putting in control horns on surfaces.
I am going to use Radio South 1/4scale hinges for the tail instead of the regular hinges they give you with the plane.
Can't start on the front with engine mounting because I don't know if my dad is getting a new GMS-120 or if I'm going to use the Moki 135.

He's on his own on this one. I want to see what he can do. He's helped me build over a hundred planes, he should do FINE!!

I called Joey at Bob's and gave him an order for the flight pack needed to finish plane. I'll pick it up tomorrow afternoon.

Tonight I got a little more done on the plane. I test fit the surfaces and hinged them. I used radio south 1/4-scale hinges and just thin CA glue. They were a perfect fit. The plane is starting to look great as parts are going together.
All the servos, receiver, battery, etc. were purchased today, so I will get a picture of the spread up on here soon.
Here are some pictures of the test fit and final look.....

Don't know yet. Dad and I are trying to decide between a GMS-120 or a Moki-135
Maybe a 4 stroke if Iím lucky.
