New EPP Edge540T

She is coming along nicely. Here's a few pic's i just took.
Flats all Gooped up. I used White Gorilla glue on the Yakk55,so i figured id see how the GOOP was. So far on the Stick mount its holding nicely.









Heres some more Pictures


CF Bracing.



Ply Mount ready to be cut
the round firewall type mount that comes with the Stick mounts are not big,So well mount the Ply mount too the Plastic mount.
Well still be able too pop off the Plastic mount from the Stick mount in the
future.




Spent most of yesterday finishing up the Edge540T form Leadfeathers Tread.
Still a few little details to be done to complete.
Paint canopy,make some Push rod guides/holders along the tail to keep the
rudd/elev PR's form flexing.







Next is Maiden Flight. I think she is a winner for sure.
Stay tuned for a maiden video

Hey Srcc, First post!!! This one is a 32''. I'm just gluing up the bottom Fuse now!! i think this one is going to have a more
Scale feel. I haven't flown my Yakk55 in calm weather yet. But sure keeps you on your toes.

Wind helps with that!!lol

Cool ,thanks. Im seting up the T/E servos now,then hand make some Ply Arms etc..
Going with some CF pushrods on this one. I like Music wire and all,but it just looks heavy lol.

Have the Ply Motor mount drawn up. Need too get out the Dremel and speed up the Process.Using a backsaw is pain staking. Ill have more pics soon.

SRCC so how was the yak55 indoors? I uped the Motor on that!!! Most use a 1300kv-1500kv Bluewonder. Theres a 1700kv on it now. On a 3S with a 8x4 Prop, Its cazy fast (if you want it to be)!!
I found even in the wind the 2S would be better inside or on a calm day!! Ive also tested a 7x4 on a 3S and its alot tamer.

Got a little bit more done on the 540T. Waiting on some 5G servos and need to swing by the LHS to she if they have any 1-2mm CF rods. I was going too use .032 music wire but i think im going to try the CF rods with Music wire ends ,CA'Ed with Heat shrink.
As of now it looks like shes well come in on a AUW of around 6.5oz ,Dry/without battery.
Cant wait too try my new Nano 2S 460Mahs.

Heres a few pics of the SFG's i just added. Pins are only in temp,till the Goop sets up.
I made some test Sfg's out of Doulbed DSF and then covered with clear packing tape.
I was so impressed with how they helped the plane fly in 20k winds and how good it helped
Knife Edges ,i have too make some out of EPP.
