I really do think that we will have to buy a trailer just to haul this to the field to fly. Have I mentioned that my husband is a bit spoiled??
Well, let’s see what other pictures have been taken…
When building an airplane sometimes it helps to do simple little tasks if you’re stuck on a problem. I don’t know what problem Jay was stuck on, but he made a little tower out of his blocks of weight.
Or maybe he’s gluing something together? *squints at the pile of stuff* Hmmm…
Also, apparently if you watch football while building it will really help you build a lot faster. At least, this is the observation I have made while looking at these pictures.
Wait… that growth looks familiar. The last time we saw it was when it was stacked up with the weights. And it looks like it’s being shaped…
Nice shaping, Jay!
Or he had created a wooden faucet.
Or it is the wooden representation of Gonzo’s nose.
Or it’s just the rudder with a matching growth to the tail.
Its supple curves cry out for you to grab it and give it a little squeeze.
My, oh my…
I think that I’ve found the robot’s legs. Those 3D printed yellow hips look a little bulky, though.
I know that this has to be leading somewhere, but where? Any ideas?
Jay is using carbon fiber arrow shafts as push rods so that they will be much sturdier (and cheaper). He also 3D printed up the yellow pieces and the control horns for the push rods to connect to.
Isn’t he talented?
Wow! That was a lot of work! After all of that gluing, whittling and shaping I think that I need to take a break. We are flying through this project!
