Fournier RF 4 Motor glider

I have been requested to post a bit about the build on this site.
Build is on http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1537554
I have had the plan for a number of years stashed away for the day when I might build it.
It is a RCM& E free plan from way back October 1996.
Original was all balsa build with Cox dragonfly engine. wt 900 gms.
I have gone a different way and building out off depron,white and blue foam,a bit of balsa & ply ,carbon fiber and covered with tissue and news print paper.
Have built many models over the years using news print covering and this one was just begging to be done that way.
W/S 1370mm [54in] power blue wonder 1700kva ,18amp ESC 3x HXT900 servos,1300 ma3s lipo battery.
and trying for a total of wt of round 400/450gms.
Fuse is done using a few balsa formers with a ply engine mount and undercart mount.All the rest is depron.
Depron elevator with a carbon spar. tail fin and rudder depron with a balsa post.
Wings hot wired white foam then a layer of spackel and sanded and news print covered .Cowl is blue foam and tissue covered
Building a vac box do do my own canopy. The mold for the canopy is blue foam news print covered and a light filler.
Hope this is of interest here.
