HI Petey thanks,

On the F3P those are cutouts, I will cover with clear laminating film, I did the wing and tail the same way, this is made from $tree foam board I leave the paper on so no need to reinforce with carbon at all. The Elipstic 260 is made from $tree foam board with the paper left on so no need to add carbon to reinforce it. I taped the board first, like they do on Foam builder university here on the forums then I traced my plan outline and cut it out, it took me less then 1 hour from start to finish, now I'll add 2- 5 gram servos, my 6 channel micro reciever 10 gram motor, 10 amp esc and a 350 to 450 2 cell lipo should weigh about 4 ounces when finished, just waiting for the motor to arrive, prop will probably be a 4x75- 4x.75 or maybe a 4x1-4x1 will have to try both to see which is better. I am going to make one out of EPP also, just waiting for the foam. I love Foam-Tac, it puts me in the mood to build.....
