The First R/C Flying Club On The Way West of Johannesburg
Hi Dereck, great to see your yak build on the blog,the pictures says it allCad designed, now we want to know where to source the materials, how did you make the parts or did you have them cnc cut.Got to inspire some guys. give us the details and your contact number, or just write a blog post with the detailsFantastic job and it flies well too!CheersJohan
Very impressive. I'd like to try my hand at a scratch build too some day. It looks like you print the plans to scale and use them to layout the aircraft parts as you assemble. Is that correct?Regards,Shaun Hards
Thanks for the Comments. Yes, this was in fact my second design and scratch build. The process starts by going thru a design manual to get the numbers to work, then the long process of technical drawings. Once done I print the parts out on A4 and tape the pages together. Using a pin to mark and draw the pattern on balsa then cut out on a scroll saw to create a kit. This build process took a year of constant work so if you choose this as a project put the time aside you will need it. The worst part of it all is the maiden flight !!!
