The first difficulty, you need to copy the contours of the fuselage. To begin with, I measured the “thickness” in the right places. With a significant departure from the center of gravity. The glider must be securely fixed and not fall anywhere during operation.
I cut the hole slightly smaller, then adjusted to securely fix on the model.
The cartons are tight enough. I need to copy the section of the fuselage to cut out the lodges. I cut rectangles from a dense Whatman paper so in about 250 grams.
I coat the tips with titanium and leave a couple of minutes for the glue to dry.
then I start cheerfully pasting the outline these rectangles. Since the titanium is already a little dry, everything sticks almost instantly like on cyacrine.
As a result, I got two templates of the sections I need.
Lodgements will be made of twenty millimeter foam. I fix the templates in the right place and fix them with pins.
I will cut with hot nichrome wire on a vertical machine. Voltei 4 amps 2.5.
For a wooden square, I cut the workpiece to the desired size. In general, when cutting with a string, I try not to use metal templates. When in contact with metal, the string cools slightly and the cut is distorted. I select the material feed at the required speed, I make sure that the string does not deviate from the vertical direction.
Trying on the cut-out coasters, everything went well. The base itself was made of double cardboard from the refrigerator packaging.
Between the vertical elements I cut out reinforcing plates of foam.
I stick on titanium.
The stand is ready, you can get ready to fly.
