The Streamer Shuttle Blog is a random grouping of my F2D combat thoughts efforts and projects.
I'm curious, do the kits come with the carbon TE material? If not, which size carbon tubes should be used? Pultruded or wrapped? Viko is selling models with aluminum alloy tubes - claims they're prop proof. Might be an option here.
The kits are wood only or wood+foam only. The kits are sized for 4mm (.157") tubes and some kits have been built with .125 tubes with similar success. Pultruded is more typical because of the cost savings over wrapped. I am glad to see the Viko group trying new technologies!!eles1
Now that is a clean shop.. he must have cleaned it for the photo!
