    Abs gauntlets glassing

    I glassed my gauntlet lowers for rigidity. instead of using the polyresin which heats up, i used epoxy that i found at the local hobby store. The epoxy is used on RC airplanes and cure times can vary depending on the product. the bonus with the epoxy is that it DOES NOT STINK, and is not...

    Flight Idle's Jetpack build

    Finally completed my jetpack build and paint up. I will have to work it some more later for hook placement and back panel, but for the most part done. Added an LED circuit and switch with a watch battery for the beacon light.

    Flight Idle's Jetpack build

    Flight Idle's Jetpack build

    I used small road pylons for my rocket nozzles. I just cut the top off to use the top 4 inches of the cone. It's great because there are no seams to cover up. bought a couple at the Dollar Store (Canada), for....well.....2 dollars total. Bam!!!! Used some hot glue to fasten the cone tops...

    looks great ChrisTTB! glad I could help!! did you use wood for the piano keys? I used balsa wood for mine as it's easy to carve and sand. I have found a lot of great materials to use for these builds at the local RC hobby store including different shapes of balsa wood, prop spinners and...

    thanks Darth Voorhees! yes the spinner is actually really helpful. because there is an aluminum baseplate, I was able to open the center hole of it to accommodate a threaded rod which i'm using for alignment of the rocket, and keep it all together. I spun a nut to the baseplate to lock it...
