2,3m / 88" Extra 300 Depron/fiberglas composit Scratchbuild - Extreme Light

Hey folks

After building lots of depron planes, including a 1/4 Cub, I have now started this new project:
A 2,3m Extra 300, builded in 3mm Depron, and full covered with 49g fiberglass. I beliewe in a takeoff weight about 4-5kg.

My Cub - takeoff weight 2,2kg

Wow! 2.3 meters is HUGE! Good luck on the maiden!
What glue do you use between wood and foam?

The maingears on the market, that will fit this size, are too stiff and heavy, so i┤ll try make one myself.
Laminated in plywood.
First I have wet the 4 layers of 1mm ply, and will let them dry in the form. Them I┤ll glue them with polyurethane, again in the form.

Both wingpanels are now ready to be sanded before fiberglas, so its time for the fuselage.
I┤ll use same construction pricip as the Extreme Flight I┤m copying, with an inner section, wich will be the connection between motor, accu, wing and maingear.
