The epp cores are lighter than the combination (original pink/epp) cores.The old combination cores weigh in at 23 grams and the new all epp cores only weigh 17 grams.The cost per kit will be $32.
Thanks,
Luke.

Step 2:

Remove cores from box and lay on a flat surface.Also notice that the bottom surface has a pre cut motor mount slot.

Step 3:

Using a low temp hot glue gun or 5min. epoxy spread glue on one of the root cores.Then hold the two root cores together making sure they are aligned. Remove all glue squezee-out immediately, making sure to include the motor mount cut-out area on the bottom surface of the wing..

Note: We prefer the low temp hot glue over the 5min epoxy because the hot glue seems to help provide a more shock absorbant nose,whereas the epoxy seems to crack.

Nope:Make sure that the glue gun is a low temp one. iIf not, it can melt the foam.


p.s. video will be up at end of the build, depending on the weather lol.

Step 4:

Gluing in the motor mount, using 5min min. epoxy or gorilla glue spread a thin layer of the glue in the pre cut motor mount slot.Make sure that the motor mount is slid all the way forward in the slot and that it is level with the bottom surface.

What happened to the rest of the build? I have one of these started on the bench, but the instructions say the center of gravity sould be at 6 1/6 inches, which seems way back to be, and I will have to put the battery right back by the motor.

I just purchased one of these and I'm really interested in hearing about the rest of the build and even more interested in seeing a video of the wing in flight.

Applying the plywood bottom plate:

Remove the 1/64th plywood bottom plate and spread a thin layer of 5min. epoxy on one side.Lay the bottom plate on the wing with the back edge flush with the back edge of the wing and the front point aligned with the center line.Hold down tight till glue is dry.

Note:magnets can be used to help hold the plywood plate on till dry.
