Anyway, my current plan is to build the Bixler and fly it first w/o FPV equipment to get used to the flight characteristics in case they are different from the Axn. Next, I plan to add the FPV equipment (no GoPro, so it shouldn't be *too* heavy). In practice, is this a good way to go since gluing the halves together will make it more difficult to add the equipment later? Any advice here would be appreciated!
One thing you could do is use hot glue sparingly (just a thin line, or little blobs spaced evenly) then when you are ready to pull it apart, get some alcohol (rubbing alcohol, so don't go pouring your beer on your plane, save it for when you get frustrated ) and get something to drip it into the seems (like a pipette) and let it sit for about 45 seconds and slowly pull it apart. The alcohol will make the hot glue release from the foam, if you aren't comfortable with this, you can practice it on some foam or just a little part of your plane.
