Thanks minimicrorc

Enlarged a 3 view to 14 inch span and looking at that if I raise the prop shaft then
cut 1/4 inch or less off the blade tips of propeller that I would have about 1/8th inch clearance.
Would the reduced load on the motor be a problem?
Not much on electric motors, back in the day everything was glow engines.

Now I need to figure out what exactly Depron is.
As well as finding a good source in the States.
If Depron is what the elevator and rudder of the Sukoi are made from this appears to be the same a pick nick plates? Playing around it looks like foam super glue works well.

Learning is fun and have I got allot to learn about this 'new' stuff.
