Big Wing Easystar

I have no real complaints about the Easystar...It's perfect for my FPV needs because of her calm handling characteristics, dorsal mounted motor, and a decent sized "cabin" in the nose. I've been able to do quite a bit with a stock airframe. My next step is to build a plane that'll go far and stay airborne longer. There is a light house on an island around 2-3 kms depending on where I launch. My goal is fly to it and back.

In the end, I crunched the numbers and councluded that what I needed was more lift and a more powerful motor to do that. I considered modifying an EasyGlider into a pusher...somehow it just didn't look right and really did not have much more room than an EasyStar...After seeing Luis's video, I'm convinced that the best solution is to install EasyGlider Wings on my EasyStar.

I'll document the mod in this thread...

PS: More info on my set up & FPV here.
