Next was cutting out the engine pod holder, well, basically it's a strong point that holds the 2 engine pods where it will be embedded into the rear section of the aircraft. I find plywood a suitable material to do this job fairly well. It was one big bulky piece when I first cut it out, wasn't happy with its weight, so I further cut rectangular holes into the structure to lighten it up and save 8 grams. A little weight reduction here and there end up saving up to 150grams on my whole aircraft!
