I'll see how it flies first, and may fix it when I get to the US

I bet it will do well!!!
This is the type of plane you fly relax, no pressure, no fear of crash ans lost thousands bucks... still you can extract lots of fun from it!!!

I will build a 30" EPP plank to start....maybe move to composite one, probably not bagged but yours looks beautiful!!!
good job Alex, congrats.

André

Cheers, Andre.

If it flies well, I would love to use it as a chance to try my first mold

Did some polishing of my models tonight, so took a photo of the RT30 at the same time. This is its current state.

I fixed the elevons today so they now are the same size and placement.

Fin is in the bag at home as we speak.

Cheers Tim. Wish I had time to do the ballast system. I'll just shove lead in it over there

I know what CNC is, But what is VTL?
Do you have a CNC Mill? would they let you use it to make some moulds? (Give me a YES)
