Shipment to India

Some sample model planes just arrived safely in India. I enjoy sending models to far away places. You learn a lot about different areas of the world. I sent some lubricant so my new friend Dinkar (who is a school teacher) can try for some higher duration flights.

This is the second attempt. They always seem to explode. I think it’s the low pressure during the flight across the ocean.

I think for now the best bet is to keep the soaked plastic and transfer it to the rubber bands. You only need a couple of drops per elastic. This must be done after the elastics are tied of course you’ll never make a knot with this stuff on the elastic. In fact, I never lubricate the knot in case it penetrates the knot.
