my second wing

hey there folks
Im new to RC planes & really like the EPP foam wings as they seem to take allot of abuse, fly awesome & are easy to repair
the plane Im showing here is my second wing as I destroyed the first plane I bought, it was a zagi 400 with just the leading edge being EPP
this plane is a flyingfoam.com core which I put spars into & built up
it flys well even though Ive about riped it in half four times from bad impacts.
I will soon buy another EPP core wing, Ive built a nicer motor mount for the new plane & will try to do a neater job installing the components as this one is getting pretty hagered
my wing
Im glad to have found a forum where I can learn & help out if I can with these awesome planes :-)
take care
JAK

I know what you mean,i love the EPP wings cause of their toughness and durability.

nice job there :-)
I was thinking about building a sorta flush mount for my brushless outrunner motor but out of lazyness did basically the same thing you see in the pic but nicer

Im waiting on another motor to come as I destroyed the motor in that pic trying to machine a shaft for it & am running a brush parkzone 480 with a 6X4 prop & it climbs pretty welll but isent nearly as fast as with the 400 outrunner :-)
the 400 outrunner using 8 cell 1400Mah battery seems to load the battery down a bit much with even a 6X3 prop & I get cutout on climbs at full throttle so I use the zagi 5X5 on that one & it seems to do well :-)
anyway take care

I'm green. Is the plane pictured called a Rhino?
If so, where can I get one (url)?
Thanks

i like the demon made by ck has some great changes battery lid, glass construction,aileron wood is allot thicker giving it stiffer edge, motor mount inline with wing core.they rock.
