German model of a Gee Bee R2

Hi Guys

I have this model that I am just starting to build but cant read the instructions. Why you ask... Well I dont speak German. It is modeled after the Byron model with some differences. I have one wing rib that for the life of me cant figure where it goes. There are 2 of them and their ply but dont go near the root. It has a different cut out for something but none of the pics in the plan show it. It maybe for the aileron balance but its a guess. Other than that its the same as the Byron wing. As a matter of fact it came with the byron manuel for reference.

The landing gear is different than the Byron. It has a big pneumatic piston for shock abosrbing. It doesnt plug in like the Byron it bolts to the crutch inside the fuse. This is a little fuzzy as there arent any good illistrations on the plan or the instructions.

So has anyone built this Gee Bee from Germany. I have failed to find anything on the net. I am in need of pics of the build if anyone has them.

Im going to power this thing with a Nue 2215/2y 6/7/1 gearbox swinging a 31x18 prop with a 12s2p battery controlled by a CC110HV contoller.

Any help would be great. I can post pics of the ribs if anyone thinks it will help.

Let me know

Jeff

Re: German model of a Gee Bee R2

Might be servo bay ribs?

Once the servo is mounted, the skin in that area can't take the aileron forces and the rib is to beef up the structure in that area.

Comp-Arf Suggests beefing up the same area with vertical grain Balsa cut to fit.


Just a thought...........

Re: German model of a Gee Bee R2

Hey Great Bushman

Its great I can maybe get this all straight. Here is what I have done. I put all the ribs on the wing jig. I took pics and will attach the PDF file of the german instructions.

Im guessing this rib thats pictured mybe for the aileron counter balance but its not pictured on the plan.

Let me know what you think

Jeff
