Thanks ztoon13, My sloping Old Fogey is made from heavy Quill Foamboard, about twice the weight of depron and Readi board. Hence the holes.

I just started on my Versa Wing

I'm planning on using it for FPV with a Hi Max 850 KV motor and a 11 X 4.7 prop. By adding the "blunt nose" section it really frees up space for the gear,and the prop clearance! I went ahead and built the wings without installing the servo's. I want to make a couple of "barn door" covers/or hatch doors for them and mount them in foam blocks,so I can get to them if needed for repairs,or replacement. RD

I'll have a few Flite Test planes in my fleet. The Bloody Wonder, the Dusty, a Flyer and I'm really liking the Mig3 "nerdnic" created. Other than that I'm going to hopefully complete a few balsa builds this winter.
I didn't bother digging through the rest of the topic, but I figured I would give my solution on this subtopic. This may be a duplicate idea, but it was the best I came up with on my own.

I soldered a "bind switch" to connect to my receiver so that when I switch airframes, I simply flip the switch to close the circuit, bind the respective airframe, and then flip the switch off. I just hot-glued the switch to the receiver so that it doesn't move around.

It could easily be moved to the rear of the powerpod, allowing easy access after the pod has been attached.

I hope this helps!
