Wing reinforcing

I use Zip Ties to reinforce my wings they do two jobs. Strengthen the wing a good as a carbon rod for less cost and weight, and reinforces the leading edge from accidental impact.

maiden

Made the maiden she flight was great. The only problem is the SPMSA2030L Servos don't have enough movement for the ailerons. So she will not roll. I need to go to Hobby King HK-5320 Servos.
Weight is 92gms.
19in WS.

HK Foam

Well I have 2 sheets cut an they look good. The foam is more like MPF then Depron, it is lite and sands very easy. Adding some carbon now. Here are pic of the CNC cutting. I will follow as I build the Ultimate.

Your rig looks great. Cut edges seem nice and crisp from here. The Depron I've been using has a denser surface skin than Adams Readi-board (DTF) with the paper off. Does the 3 mm Hobby King foam share the more porous, lighter surface with the Readi-board or MPF?

Do you have a weight per sheet for the Hobby King foam?

Joe

The surface is more like MPF and it is not as rigid as Depron. As for the weight I have not weighted it but it seems liter then Depron. I broke the router bit .031. Got to close to the edge, need to set up better its my last 1, more on order. So can not cut the last two sheet. Will post as soon as I get the bits.
