Subject: Re: Reinforced fuse
How much weight did the glass add? We've been covering the fuse's with ultracote lite with much increased strength and little weight penalty. Also, we have used light 1/8 sheet for sides with the same success. Adding onto the CF reinforcements, our fuselages buckle at the radio hatch area with a hard nose-in. Any luck reinforcing this area? Or, perhaps, a redesign is in order??? Sincerely, Dan E. DanStrider@...
