Now you know why the Drenalyn is my all time favorite low aspect ratio foamy....waaaay better then just flat. Push it to the limits and it never lets you down.

I built a sub 4 oz. 14 incher from 3mm Depron a few years back for indoor and it flew great. A FB talked me out of it, stuck on some big electronics and promptly bashed it to bits. I sez to him ......"heavy means fast", but he didn't listen. So he went with an EPP 17" and all was well.

To beef up the LE when using thin Depron, I got some vinyl sign material, cut a 1/2 strip and installed it by pulling tight and wrapping it around both below and above in front of my shop electric heater. Worked like a charm and helped keep things in one big piece. I found some stretchy celo tape at the local hardware store that works well too, much lighter then the vinyl.

I like your EPP 'nose extension motor mount automatic balancer' idea.

Think I'll all go whip out a Depron 13 incher to give some of my tiny gear a home.

Later: Frank
