The tester plane

Here is a pic of my tester plane. Built this purely for testing wings, gear etc. the fuse is just a square made out of 4 pieces of DT foam glued together and taped. I did try Ed's noob tube fuse but did not like the extra weight.

The wing is a kinda armin/KF one I built. DT paper removed and taped on one side. inside is supported with light ply with an angle for dihedral. 40". This wing works great.

plane weighs in at 475 grams and fly's great. Surprisingly it handles the winds fine ( 8-10mph ).

How much dihedral did you end up with? 3"-4" under the wing tips? Oddly I'm also making a 40" WS lol.
