Will do, foam is a bit thicker and perhaps denser than Edge and CF bracing is thicker as well.

Cool, lighter than I was expecting. Maiden tomorrow too?

Yep, EPP Slick should fly Sat.

I put LG on 104 and epoxied all horns into control surfaces, that was about it. Still waiting for some bits and have not ordered any packs yet. I may get it ready for next weekend but more likely the one after that.

Mine was the only one flying and I had some setup issues where ail servo's were being blocked by some bracing on one side and inhibiting full travel on both. I did fix that Sat night and flew it in front of my house Sun morning a bit. It was much better but I'd still like more aileron. I have more travel in end points but the servo's looked like they were going to pull away from the wing if I went further, I may need to check the bevel to be sure it's not binding.

Plane does feel pretty stiff and does fly more like a balsa than the other foamies but also still feels a bit odd to me, hover actually seems a bit harder than it should be. I did get it into a KE spin once but I really struggle getting it into one.

I think my build is a bit shoddy in other areas as I messed up durning the build. I had mounted the bottom fuse to the wing and horizontal fuse and was going to be done for the night. Watched a TV show then decided to do another step but did not look at destructions or really think about things and I glued the top fuse on. Then the next day I realized I was supposed to do all bracing and mount ail servo's before doing top fuse so all would be totally flat. One wing on mine looks to have same washout which may be causing some issues.

We'll see when Phil builds his the correct way

We will see how it goes. I did find that the slots for the aileron horns are too far forward. I had to cut the slots rearward so the holes on the horn that hold the pushrod wire were directly over the hinge. I had to move about 1/4 inch. This may be why you don't have enough aileron throw. Check out your model Kevin.

You can fly it after I get done and we will compare.

Great news about the 42 slick. I have more flights on mine than you. At least for this month.

Doubtful, still have not ordered batts, have not seen shipping notice on hardware for motor.

I did get rudder and elevator all setup I think. THIS THING IS BIG! The horizontal stab is close to 46" across when mounted. The servo's on 2S lipo are crazy fast as well
