InteR/Ceptor profile RC Boost Glider build thread

Here is a quick build thread for the InteR/Ceptor Rocket glider.

AUW is 10 oz rtf with E-6 reload, I think this bird is light enough a quest 20mm D-5-P would work as would a D-12 or E-9 BP motor.

One sheet of depron will work, however you will need to splice the fuse near the back half as the length is 42" or so. You can splice wherever you wish, I did it near the rear as it is most supported by the wing/top plan.

Just one small 1/8" carbon rod for a pivot and two small 1/8" id aluminum torque tubes, two dubro servo horns for the torque tubes, a 24mm motor mount, and about 18" of 1/8" carbon rod for the wing spar. A bit of dubro hinge tape for reinforcing the spar and torque rod, two 6" .039 music wire pushrods.

You'll need two hs-55 servos or similar, an rx, bec and battery/nose weight as needed.

I built this one from printing out my own plans without margin or scaling and taping together. When cutting the tabs make sure to use your slits in the top view as your guide instead of blindly using the template to make sure they line up perfectly. The ventral and dorsal fins don't have to be at a certain angle, as long as they are more vertical than horizontal they should be fine, and should be matching.

Test flight was great, just needed a bit of downtrim for boost, post boost glide setting was great, this just floats.
