Thanks Rich. Forgive my ignorance but never used glass and resin before, so as i understand it you brush on the resin then lay up the cloth and scrape off the excess? I think trying it on a test piece is sensible. Am i right in saying that you should use the lightest possible cloth?

Regarding the weight, how heavy would an average twin minifan setup with cells for each fan and esc's be roughly? Iv'e got basic flaps on this one so that should help like you say, on the next one iv'e redesigned the wing with more realistic fowler/ extending flaps as per the real one increasing slow speed performance and wing area.

Cheers, Phil
