In 1 hours times I get about .250 of epoxy that is outside the mold. Though I have mixed approx. 25 grams for the entire fuse. I have not weighed that material to see how much has pushed out.

My current one piece fuse Fuse I am flying is 48g. I am good with that and I looking as that as my goal.

I will not be able to make 40-44 due to these facts:

1. the circumference behind canopy at LE of Wing is 1.15 wide x 1.55 tall

2. behind my wing is 1" tall and .975 wide.

3. The aft end is .500 wide x .400 tall.

4. also the nose is 9.75" long.

to offset these weights and part of the 9.75" Nose design, My wing is also has a 7.75" Chord.

The design was so there would not be nose weight added, with the length I could use slightly smaller tail surfaces which I have been using for 3 years now without issues.

and...... I love to build.
