The G-10 is .060 with a doubler on each side. It's not hard to make when you have the tools to cut them out out 20 or 30 at a time.

That's going to be real hard when I launch last! But then maybe not as I fly up past you!

Funny

We are going to have a blast this year!

You know we can always trade planes for the contest! I already won with it I can do it again.

Do me a favor, borrow T's wattmeter and let us know the amps and watts with your set-up! Inquiring minds and all I am going to see if T wants to borrow the E-Ava, you know, just to make Friday more fun Hey it's the first ever ALES at the Fall Fest And the Ava has already won two first ALES events!

Everything went well today with the changes in the programing. Got the CG in a good spot. Found a twist in the elevator left stab. Going to go over all the covering with a heat gun this week to clean up all the funny looking stuff in the covering.

Will be stopping by Cermark this week to see my buddy Steve for some folding props to do some more testing with. We found on the watt meter test that I may have to much prop for this motor set up.

All up weight on the E-Oculus 74 oz.

Tell next weeks test!

Well, i am the new owner of an Oculus kit. I will start on it Monday. Got the table cleared off and can hardly wait to finish it.
Great thread here and am glad to have help along the way. This will be a nice step up from an art hobby 2.5 evolution!
