Hey gang, sort of looking around for 43% Carden build threads, did not see much going on out there. I am about 30% through mine so far and was wondering if there was a need to document what's going on to finish it out. Maybe I missed someones thread, not sure.

I am willing to post pictures and info if there is a need. I have taken 400 or so pictures of previous builds and send CD's all over the place but never done a thread online.
I was thinking more of a build trick, keep it lite, hide a glue joint... type thread since there are so many really good overall threads going on now and in the past on the previous Carden offerings.

Also since the 43% Carden is a slight departure in several areas, thought it may be helpful to those looking for a larger Carden but only have the 35% and 40% pool of information to choose from.
So, if someone is doing it already let me know otherwise I will start posting pictures.
Thanks
Will Berninger

definitely post some pics!! I have a 43% 260 partially framed up as well. I've got a couple other projects in front of it right now, but plan to do a build thread at some point.

Post it Will.

I know Dean Nistetter is building two right now and I have seen some of his pics. He is doing a really, really nice job.
Maybe he can post what he's done as well...

Ok, I will get some info together and start posting in a few.

I have some of the pictures sent to me from Dennis of Deans build, if Rick and Dean are ok with it I can post some of what he took as well or he is welcome to post here.

I did not take a bunch of set up pictures so they will sort of start partially assembled.

Information is awesome so anyone having info to share with a 43% Carden is welcome to join in.
Will B.

Terry Boston built the one that I've been flying. It has the DA200 in it, so you won't be able to compare apples to apples but Terry may have some photos that he can post.

Re: Carden 43% 300 build thread ?

Here is mine that I am presently installing my gear. I am using a DA 170 with KS cannisters and will use Futaba gear all around.

The build went along with no issues and very pleased with the quality of the kit. Something that is expected from a Carden Kit, but the wood in this kit was super. I have not had a chance to weigh the plane in bare framup, so that will have to wait till completed.

Can't wait to get to fly this plane.

Cam McCausey Competition Aircraft built my 43% Carden Extra 300 that I flew this year. Later in the year I installed a 64 oz tank - the DA170 loves to drink 93 octane!
