Custom Electric Rudder – More Reinforcement and Shaping

Posted by Zachary Wiest in Auxiliary Propulsion, Decisions, Epoxy, Modifications

As promised, I added some more epoxy to the rudder to further strengthen and eventually shape it.  After an initial coat of strong epoxy thickened with high density silica, I mixed up some low density microballons and epoxy to build up the rudder.  Once cured, this stuff sands much easier than normal epoxy and is easy to shape.

Time Spent: 1.0 Hours

Total Time In Build: 73.0 Hours
