This question is open to anyone with a 25% ASW22.
What is the empty fuselage weight, please?

If it's not empty, can you advise the contents for comparative purposes, please?

Evening chaps. Today I finished all spar work,(I rigged the beast in the back courtyard, this thing is big ! )I hope to get all the core sections fixed in place this week, then skinning will commence. Pictures to follow. Before I get the calculator out, does anyone know the correct wheel size?
Have a fab Easter folks.

Hi Folks, I finally got to rig the foam panels loosely. Had to do it outside as this ship is a monster!

Hi Dave, great model, they look impressive on the ground or in the air, some footage showing a ASW22 one of our members built here. A Teakle fuselage wasn't available at the time so he made his own plug. The video link below starts from when it appears.
He made a BL version, so 6.6m span, (ignore the 6.7 in the video). He did make a very strong wing based on his previous F3B model making experience, it still flexes. I note the bendy/stiff discussion earlier.

Referring this gliding supplier catalog, https://www.glidingshop.eu/upload/Wheel ... 0Table.pdf
all the ASWs use the standard 5.00-5 main tyre, so for 25%, main wheels 3.5", and a 2" tailwheel are very close.
