In 2011 Robert (BlueFalcon) made a limited number of Super Alulahs from EPP. During the last 2 year some were lost and others were damaged beyond repair. The demand for a new batch Super Alulahs increased. Jarno ordered enough EPP at http://www.epp-versand.de and BlueFalcon opened his workshop for us. The ultimate goal is to make 12+ kits in a day and make a lot of Dutch FPV flyers very happy with this indestructible, low budget, EPP, ultra fun wing.
Tools used during the day
Belt Saw Machine, 3D foam cutter, pencil, sharp knife, EPP and a cordless drill.
We started the day with coffee & cake. After that the EPP blocks were cut in measured pieces. Blocks for the wings and blocks for the fuselage and tail. Jarno operated the belt saw machine and cut sheets for the body parts.
I was happily surprised to see that Robert owns a 3D hot wire foamcutter. Never saw such a thing before so I was very exited. The machine made 4 wing parts from a precut piece of EPP. It took about 12 minutes to finish 1 wing.
As the machine did a lot of work there was enough time to fool around.
Drawing the fuselage parts & tail on the freshly cut EPP sheets.
Hard labor makes men hungry. The lunch was typecal Dutch fastfood like pataat, frikandellen, kroketten & bitterballen from snackbar Toon’s.
Always time to fool around with the cordless drill and someone with me.
Around 3 o’clock we were finished and created 12 Super Alulah kits and a lot of waste. It’s a dirty job, but someone needs to do it. Robert handed me a blue worksuit for better looks. After vacuum cleaner number one was full, we had to use number two for the wanted results. It was a great day with some great people. I like to thank Jarno, Klaas, Pam, Robert & Ronald for this great meet in Alulah Heaven. I went home as a happy camper with a very fresh Super Alulah kit: The White Edition!
The last info I got from the farmer is that it was oke for us to bring some friends. He doesn’t like that all the time. And we do not fly all the time. So I do not see any problems as long as you go with me, Remy or Ray. And we can also still fly at the old spot near the new mushroom factory.
