Renn Tel jetpack wip
« on: May 19, 2014, 02:15 PM »
So I probly jumped the gun a little... dont have much of my kit done. but I love a challenge, and, I want a jetpack. still needs resined and rondo'd. Here's what I have so far. roughly 21 hours of cutting and assembly.         only had 3 pieces left over, 2 that i just couldnt find where they went, and one is the reason the right side cap is shorter than the left.  more to come...

Glue is the best substance that I have found to use with pep files.

is this your first project?

I've found superglue to be the best for pep, it dries fast, and when you apply the resin, it soaks into the paper, making it stronger.

I've taped the back side previously with mild success. Super glue is your best bet. Also, looks pretty good. Hopefully you finish it! I see many pep builds go south after the paper assembly.

I used fiberglass resin and Rondo on the outside of my pep arena pack. The used filler foam on the inside.

  It was your jetpack wip that inspired me to build mine. I built a small inner suppor system with foam board, but was thinking of using the foam to fill it. I got the back resin'd today.

Very cool. Good idea on the inner foam board support.

Nice to see another pep pack. My z-6 build is at the tipping point of completion. Just careful how much rondo you use. I used probably twice as much as I should have because I wanted it super sturdy and I payed for it in weight.

  I am ready for rondo, I have kind of put this a side to work on armor, and soft parts hoping to get get back to work on my pack soon.
