Installing the Nose Doubler

The nose doubler is an important component in the Mugi Evo as it lends strength and rigidity to the front of the aircraft where the heaviest items of flight gear, such as batteries, will be later mounted. The doubler is a diamond shape so that no hard line is created at the rear of the doubler which would encourage a crease to form.

The nose doubler should be placed about 8mm back from the nose; when correctly placed there should be a gap of around 5mm between the doubler and the wing score line.

Glue the nose doubler in place with Evostik, following the instructions on the tube, and press down firmly using a flat implement such as a heavy book. A good bond is essential as a good deal of the Evo's nose strength will be built in here.
