Hi - so I did the basic builds - nutball, FT flyer and Old Fogey - a great way to get into the hobby. As a newbie my flying skills are still developing, so I'm busy flying the Old Fogey. Thinking ahead, and since I had a bulk pack of foamboard sitting around, I decided to go to the next stage and build the Baby Blender. Great fun, and, as was spotted by another UK contributor, I ran into that problem of slightly smaller foamboard sheets. Not wanting to waste foam I made-up the wings with my shorter board, then added a couple of foan blocks to the end of the wings and carved and shaped them down to the wing profile. Seemed nice to shape the trailing edge as well, so that's what I did.
Apologies for the colour, my local harware store had a sell-off of stock and I spotted this dayglow yellow for next to nothing. I masked the foam before spraying to prevent the paint eating it. Being a 'canny-Scot' I also went for the super cheap control rod adjuster using the little vee in the wire and modified zee bends at both ends. Get the mod right and the wire locks itself with the end projections opposing each other and preventing any possibility of the wire dropping out. I also found the vee adjuster was a handy point to hold and rotate the wire to slip it into the control horn.
Also spot the 'credit card' control horns or Ikea family card, video store card, etc, etc. Can't wait for my skills to improve enough for me to be confident about flying this little beauty.
