Started tonight on my WrongWay 30cc Lam Yak. This will be the latest of the animals on the 3D Farm. Over the past year we have got to know and become close friends with Richard a.k.a WrongWay and Chumley. WrongWay, Chumley, and roc11161972 fly the 50cc and 30cc Lam Yak's and man are they a blast. It has a giant foamy feel with a prop ripping gas motor on the front.:biggrin:

The 30cc will be back in stock by the end of the month but he does have the 50cc in stock.

So let's kick the tires and light the fires.

First thing I did was make the whole in the root ribs bigger. This one will be outfitted with night light and I will need the room for an extra battery back.

Started at the center of the fuse where the wing tube is located. Lay precut light ply down on plans and place 3/8 x 3/4 Maple along the top front, top bottom and the firewall the rest will be 3/8 x 3/4 balsa. I went ahead and glued the carbon fuse rod with gorilla glue so it can cure overnight.

When I get your shipment out next week (landing gear, etc etc) you will have a WW-Fiji bottle in there. It is 330 ml or 11.1 oz
(pictured is the 500mm for Phills 50cc). The 330 should give your a great 12 minute flight with plenty reserve... I had the 11 oz
Hayes in my first 30cc and on occasion it did 20 minutes to fumes...

Chason,

I'll text you the specs that we talked about yesterday. Also, you'll need to build a mounting for that WW water bottle-turned fuel tank. I would put the fuel tank mount behind the gear near the CG. Two choices on how to do that: 1 - add a block of balsa or ply that you can run velcro straps through to mount the tank, or 2 - make a cut out in the fuse so the tank fits into the fuse. With the second method you can check the gas from either side while flying.
