Sailplane Construction Project Session #164
In order to start flight testing soon, I had to
modify the fuselage rack for the Odyssey to incorporate the Sailplane so I
can transport it to the flying field, not to mention on to the SAM Champs.
Since I have neither the room nor the stamina to take all of my SAM aircraft
entries, I am limiting myself to just five models this year. I will leave
the Class A T-Bird free flight, Korda Electric, and Nostalgia Fubar 600X
home this year.
This afternoon I put the fuselage rack in the
back of the Odyssey and placed the fuselages of the five models that I am
taking on the rack. Fortunately I only need to add three additional landing
gear blocks, one for the Playboy Junior and two for the Sailplane as shown
This picture shows the fuselage locations from
I marked the location for the screw holes for the
new blocks on the rack's base and drilled them as shown below.
Once the blocks were added, a trial fit of the
Sailplane confirmed their location as shown below.
This is a close up of the landing gear axle
extension inserted in the block...........Tandy
