Creating the cape attach points on the body.

From 1/4" ply cut the cape mounting blocks. The center front is a 1.25 inch circle. The two front side blocks are 5/8" wide and an inch long. The two rear blocks are 5/8" squares.

To determine the shape of the center rear block, lay the cape on the body with the body sides and cape fins aligned at the front. the leading edge of the cape should be about 3/4" in front of the front edge of the top plate. Take a small drill and hand drill a hole through the cape Depron and top plate Depron where the rear center mounting screw will be located between the front two 1/8" carbon tubes. Remove the cape.

Around the hole and the top of the vertical motor support bracket draw the shape of the attach point similar to the one shown in the picture. Cut this piece from 1/4" ply.

With a knife, cut the Depron to seat each mounting block. Lightly bevel the edge of each block that attaches to the side so that it remains level. Use a slower drying epoxy to get a good bite into the wood. Glue each block in place and add gussets to the underside of the rear side blocks.
