Jim, I use clear scotch tape for hinges. Did you find the file folder on the yahoo group page with the mods you were looking for. I just completed half of a wing that is going to make a 35 in bug. Just install another w3 rib and adjust the spar holes for the remaining ribs. I just sanded the 2nd w3 LE back by puting some sand paper around a 1/8 dowel to keep the bending of the dowel in a curve like shape. I kept the alignment of the spar between ribs w1 and w7. It wasn't too difficult to do. John G helped me out with the info. I did not use the large boom the instructions say to use. I used a 1/8 carbon rod and I know several other who have too. Also I used 1/16 inch balsa fort the tips instead of 1/8 inch. I also plan on using 1/32 balsa with a thin layer of apoxy for the tail. This may be too thin and break so I will probably actually add some .5oz glass to one side only. I have weighed everything that is built minus the one wing half with radio equipment and will be under 4 oz. I don't know how John G built his 35 in bug so light.

I was also wondering how you did your hinges on your Bug¹s tail feathers. -- Thanks Jim Holliman -- Tulsa, OK Member of AMA & TULSOAR This E-mail address may not be shared with any person or business without the permission of the owner.
