Correx = Coroplast.

2mm is the best stuff to use if you can get your hands on it. Anything else is too heavy for this size airplane. 4mm is far too heavy.

Thanks extreme sports. I thought they looked the same. Corro is fun and easy to work with.

Well, I done it again.

It was a bit windy and gusty here in eastern New Mexico, today. Q-Tee just doesn't have the wind penetration. She bare crept along into the wind, was fast with the wind. Stuff happens.

Back to flying larger and faster stuff I'm afraid.

That's tough -- it was a really nice looking model. Looks to be re-buildable, though.

I got an old Q-TEE off some guy on Craigslist, he had an old COX .049 for sale for 20 bucks, and when I picked up the engine, he threw in the plane and told me I could have it to, it's kinda trashed, and I've had it a while but got inspired to fix it, so I figured I'd rebuild it. I can rehinge the rudder and elevator, and rebuild the fuselage.

I got a bit more done tonight, the only parts I was able to salvage was the wing and landing gear wire from the old plane, I'll also be using the wheels I had on the first Q-TEE I built back in the early 80's that plane is long gone, but I did keep the wheels.

here's the latest, I got the servos installed, and the nyrod, I'm ready to sheet the bottom of it but was thinking before I do that, I'd like to figure out something for a battery hatch, and at this point, I'm not so sure it even needs one.

Here's a link to how I made a forward hatch for my EQT/Q-Tee:

thanks for the link, I like your hatch idea, I would of done what you did had I seen that thread earlier, I'd already started doing my hatches - I decided to go with two hatches on the bottom, the hatch in the front is to access the receiver, that hatch will be held in with a screw.

The battery hatch I decided to put under the center of gravity so balance would be less critical on which battery I use on any given flight, (I have 2 or three battery packs to choose from.
