I LIKE Fat Fuselages! Besides it now means that I can add TRIPLERS to the sides!! πŸ˜‰
Be a Badass like the Bloody Baron.

Medical Tape is considerably cheaper than Hinge Tape, flexible and quite Strong!!

This ONLY really works on the plain white Adams RediBoard...

I'm brushing on Acrylics...
I do have a nice Airbrush. If I get anything FINISHED, I may break it out!!!

Please, if you have any comments or questions, don't hesitate!! πŸ˜ƒ
Man that's some nice work. Way too hard on yourself. Really like the results from the sanding. Thumbs up!!

And if you have a receiver that doesn't have an LED to tell you it's on, and if you spend an hour or two trying to figure out why the ESC won't beep and the motor won't run, don't admit you're an idiot that didn't realize there was no BEC in the ESC to all your friends on the forums! :ROFLMAO:
YES.... I would be that Idiot!! πŸ˜œπŸ˜„πŸ˜†
I haven't bound anything yet, so I used a Servo Tester. Should give me similar results??

If not I could just plug it into my Mini Speedster. πŸ˜‰
It's sharing of great ideas like this, that continues to keep this Forum relevant!!

Hooking it up to the Servo Tester, I got a LED, 2 beeps (2S Battery)

I plugged 2 Servos into the Servo Tester, and the ESC lead powers the Servos....

So I guess that means BEC.

Working Aft...
The Vstab looked a bit floppy at the base. 😞 NOT REPEATING that!!
So I glued a single piece of HD Poster Board around the Base with White Gorilla Glue.

The Darker Yellow is Enamel Paint. Want to make SURE that certain Paper edges can afford to get at least damp....
REMEMBER, I don't build mine to only last a week, a month... I need these to LAST! πŸ‘πŸ‘

Did some Hstab strengthening, the good 'ol Popsicle Stick method...
20191129_004809-1.jpg
And realized that looks UGLY! 😳
... To fix that without adding critical weight to the Tail...
20191128_225726-1.jpg
I cut and curved sharply, two pieces of Poster Board.

And painted it to match the Turtle Deck.

Installing it tonight. πŸ˜‰

Cool idea about incorporating close pins.
Thanks for commenting!!! It was getting sparse around here... 😭

It's all good, I'm sure NOBODY here has seen a Baby Blender take SO LONG to Build! 😜😳

But then by now, almost NOTHING was left Stock on her!! 😯😎
Maybe the Bottom Wing.... NOPE! Had to cut out the Fuse Slots for the half inch wider Fuse.

Oh, and again to fit the TRIPLERS!! πŸ˜³πŸ˜ƒ

WAIT till I post today's Work!! .... Later Tonight. πŸ˜‰

I've used Clothes Pins for many years, in 4 different Hobbies. Not just because they're cheap, but they're just strong enough to hold, without damaging Foam or anything sensitive...
But the Wood doesn't damage painted areas.

WEIGHT CHECK...
IMG_20191203_143314.jpg
Even includes a couple of mg of Paint! 😜
Now Tubby Cubby had a HEAVY 3.2mm Piano Steel Tail Gear. Guessing it was QUITE heavier!! πŸ˜³πŸ˜–
IMG_20191203_143956.jpg
Everything but Batry!

ONE of my Crawler Batries weighs MORE than the Whole Plane!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜„πŸ˜‹ ha ha

Not to be disrespectful, but I have used thinner wire tailwheels on my 6 ft stuff. Like maybe .020". That thing will support a tank or three.
No disrespect taken! πŸ˜‰
I like all interaction that's not purely insulting or accusations!

This Gear is Aircraft Grade Aluminum, only 9 Grams... πŸ˜‰

IT'S NOT FOR THE MINI SPEEDSTER!!!
Just to be clear. 😊

This is my Extended Fuselage (Length and WIDTH), Baby Blender Build Thread...
Again to be clear. I don't remember hearing from you on this Thread yet... If not - WELCOME!!
This is another far from Stock Build!! πŸ˜‹

The Tail Wheel is for the Blender. I'm actually WATCHING weight on every step.

With dressed Power Pod, Servos, but no Battery, she's just under

WITH Batry.....

Given the size, I might be doing good! πŸ˜‰

How come you haven't gotten any flight video on the Speedster?
.... We talked about that. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Ž
I'm still having trouble getting ANY Video for over 3 years!
ALL I've got is a 7 year old Android...

CAN'T afford a Hat Cam set.
Can't afford ANY decent Camera...
Asked ANYONE if they had an older Model GoPro that don't use anymore, that MAYBE they can donate to an Old Fart who can't catch ANY break...

NO ONE WILLING. 😞

Disability Pay barely covers FOOD. So I'm trying the best I can...

The Speedster is getting a new ESC with separate BEC. It's been several years, and I forgot how to do the Outputs... πŸ˜–

Couldn't your wife film you on the Android? It takes pretty good pics.
You're right! The Android takes very good Pictures...
Takes crappy Distance Video though...
I've tried it. Especially a Mini, looks like a speck Flying. Even worse than several Flight Videos I've seen!! πŸ˜‹

I'm DEFINITELY doing a Maiden Video of this Blender! I promised my Grandson. 😊
Hopefully he's able to go outside by the time in finished.
Still dealing with THAT too.... πŸ’”πŸ˜ž
