Brio Wing and Stabilizer foam cores

Near exact duplicates of these parts are available cut from 3/4 lb/cu ft foam.  We can locate the wing tube hole and dihedral for a direct Brio replacement or for an Aries replacement.  As an Aries replacement these wings change the plane from an 1100 sq.in. wing to a 940 sq.in. wing.  This promotes the Aries to an FAI competitive design appropriate for today's roll and snap heavy sequences.  This is a great way for a master pilot to build an Aries or for someone to upgrade their plane as they get more proficient. - $xxx / set

Super Light Carbon Servo Rails

At 7 grams a piece (7.25" long), these might be the lightest and strongest rails available.  The large fuselages of today's top designs can lead to weight gain just from the long servo rails needed.  These rails are balsa/ply "L" shaped and are fully encased in a layer of carbon composite.  This makes them surprisingly stiff. - $xx/pair

Stab adjusters - Use to pinch a 1/8" aluminum rod to adjust stab incidence $xx

Air scoop - looks cool and is!

A discussion with a professional at Pervis bearing company in McKinney, Texas taught us that our bearings are designed for approximately 250 degree operation or less.  Above this their dimensional tolerances are exceeded and they grind themselves to death.  Use an air scoop to cool the crankcase.  Without it, the crankcase sits in a dead air pocket.

Our scoop is way oversized.  It is over 6 inches long and 2 inches wide.  This allows you to cut it down to fit the curve of your fuselage nose.  A small opening is all that is needed.

The scoop on the Aries above was cut down to about half size.

Smaller Cheek Cowls ($xx):

Excellent for the Rhapsody or Entropy: These are made from carbon fiber and look real nice. I left some of the CF exposed on my plane, with clearcoat only, because it looks kewl.

Larger Cheeks ($xx)


Making these cheeks actually is more time consuming than a little part like this appears to be. I try to keep them very light so I vacuum bag them. I only have one mold, so to make a set takes several evenings. I also try to use some skill laying down the CF so the fibers don't separate and it looks better and has minimal surface defects. I need to be real careful because I don't prime the molds. This would cover up the beautiful fibers.
