Hey all, new to this forum...my name is Trent. I've been building and flying models for a few years and have recently become interested in Pattern; I have a few questions for you.
I'm rebuilding a Birdi Kaos .60 that was last flown (and crashed) in the 70's.
The wing hold down bolts were originally smallish machine screws; my plane is missing the screws and I'm re-fitting the wing to the fuse. I've gotten the wing as close to square as I can get it, now I need to check to see it's still square when I screw the two together.
My questions are:
1) My wing mounting holes are drilled through a plywood plate on the bottom of the wing but the wing is hollow in the center with no hardwood filler block, is this the way the original wing was constructed? I'm concerned that the hold down screws will not have enough support and allow the wing to move in the saddle once mounted.
2) Unfortunately I do not have a set of plans for the model, does someone know where I can get a PDF of the plans? I found one on the Trentonrcflyers site but the type is not legible.
Thank you in advance,
