SU-25/29 hot wire build

going to start my first edf scratch build in a couple weeks.

its going to be a twin 64mm edf frogfoot. Going to use the plans from Mr. D_FAST if I can get them vectored and imported into a laser cutter for hotwire templates.

I was hoping to get the auw around 1 kilo. I am going to use 2 changesun 11 blade 64mm fans.

I am hoping to get the parts ordered later this week!

Like D_FAST I am going to hopefully be using eps and glassing that for the weight savings over pink or blue insulation foam.

Planning on doing a semi built up wing by hot wiring the wing and then doing the stepout in the wing with balsa reinforcement and lots of carbon fiber throughout the wings

here's D's build thread for this beauty...gotta love his paint job

Yeah I tried to do that with my wood shops laser cutter/engraver but it was just taking to long with the line width and other stuff like that. Got the hotwire stuff ordered tonight so by any luck I will have a working cutter next week!
