It may differ between models, but the two I have built, EA and EAII, the center of the leading edge of the wing, has a piece of ply that goes under the top of the fuse in front.

Not all the way back to the trailing edge, you will see a piece of ply where a nylon bolt that goes through the wing and into a ply box that contains a blind nut.

If you look at the 5th picture in the first post, you can see this box I am talking about. The 6th picture you can see towards the back of the wing where the nylon bolt would pass through a piece of ply.

If you are looking for a measurement, I will try and remember to do that tomorrow or maybe others will chime in, but it will help if you say which plan you are using.

Anyone going to SEFF this year - I am considering it - be my first time.

May only be 1 or 2 days.

I'm hoping to make SEFF this year. I missed last year for the first time in many years.

I hope they will still have eweek. Attendance was way down last year and talk of cancelling the event. The Frosty Dog had a larger turn out, with a good size crowd, just cooler weather.

The plans are to get there for the 27/28 just because of other commitments.

Not sure I will fly - may not have any planes with me this time. Dalton. you normally bring something to fly?

Hey Bob,
Sorry for the slow reply. We rented a cabin in the mountains and it was so far out of civilization we had no cell phone signals, computers, TV's. Only a huge wood burning fireplace and lots of firewood.

No, I never take anything to fly. I did one year but found I needed that space to bring back stuff I buy at a bargain. We always go down on Wednesday and come back on Saturday morning. My traveling SEFF companion likes to get back in time to rest before work on Monday. What time will you get there on the 27th?

BTW The guy we rented the cabin from is an airplane nut. I took the Ellipsocub and flew it over a lake for them. I think I made a new friend.

Here is a picture or two of the cabin with the fishing lake and believe it or not but nowhere else to shop but Dalton's General Grocery.

Sorry, but I had to photograph that!

Interesting name on that place - I am sure it had nothing to do where you stayed :-).

I may bring one plane. I am not sure what time I will be there, plans are changing all the time. When I get it nailed down, will let you know.
The cabin idea sounds great.

EMP Outrunner BL Motor N3530/07 1700KV
EMP N Series Motor and calls for a 7*6 or 8*4 with a 3 cell.
I ended up with a 10*6 prop and my batt was bad thats why I had very short flights. I used my 1600 batt. with a 30amp esc and get 6 min flights. Which is Great!! But
I'm still confused about the motor it's really big but a high kv. Should I use a higher amp esc for more kv And then use the 7*6 or 8*4?
There's no plans of this so nice looking EA?

We'll change our plans to going down on Thursday and staying until Sunday morning the 28th. It will be great to meet you and see you fly!!!
We stay at the local hotels in Americus. You may want to call ahead and reserve a room, they get gone fairly quick. Unless you're bring something to camp in.

Hi pierre,
The plans are on post #2 at the bottom of the list. If you need them converted to A4 paper printout let me know and I will try to convert them, however it may take a while, I'm really busy at the time.
Thanks for your positive comments.
Dalton

This may very well be the future of private pilot flying. No airport or runways needed.

It would need one of these in full size for sure.
