Subject: Re: hinging methods
I am using a Glass hinge that I saw on the net. You wet out Fiber Glass or Kevlar with thin laminating epoxy and blot it dry so it has the weave open. Then you let it dry between two pieces of wax paper. Cut your hinge from the coated fabric on a 45 degree angle. You can apply it with white glue or epoxy and fabric won't wick up the glue. Makes a great hinge. --- In BugHLG@y..., "danstriderfly" <danstrider@a...> wrote: > What different methods have you used to hinge the tail surfaces and > which are the lightest? > > I have used single tape hinges, double tape hinges (both too heavy), > and thread hinges.
