    hi bob
    i think its a waste of time building new mold,s if you only doing 5 of them ,i could see if your doing 100 of them ,you are more faster then the big rc plane makers anyway some guys wait 4-6 months for there custom plane,keep up the great work ,rye

    Bob, I disagree with Rye (no offense, Rye). Quality is paramount. Only you can determine if the time/quality equations balance out. You are correct in assuming that force-curing your parts by way of the blankets adds a lot of variables and possible warpage to the parts. If you want a heat-curing facility (autoclave), you might consider using your table saw and building a box and experiment with several heat sources (incandescent light bulbs, heated air via fans, etc.). In my limited experience, I have found that oft-times heat-curing epoxy can cause more brittleness to the end-product versus a more rubbery, resilient product when slow-cured.

    I think the toughest molds you have that will not warp ever is the first canopy mold you made. That thing is a beast. If you made all your molds inside a supported box, that would be the way to go but they will be heavy and would fill up your garage.
