Well, got my 3mm EPP in a couple of days ago and constructed a set of 2-bladed rotors. All went well until I taped the 2mm CF rod to the leading edges of the blades. The blades now look like they have washout at the tips, along with a few whoop-de-doos in the center sections! I'm using Scotch brand Extreme tape. Real pliable, sticky stuff with a filament weave. I weighted the blade down first (with a 48" aluminum ruler) to make sure it was perfectly flat and edges were straight, then applied the tape to one side. I then removed the ruler, and carefully worked the tape over to the other side of the blade. Anybody have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
