cross bracing and is it the same stuff you use on the tensor

carbon

Using some .050 rods.... .040 would work fine also but had the .050. Yep, same as I used on my Sorta Tensor.

i love the looks, why did you decide to use a shockflyer-type fuse over a full box type fuse?

evolution

lagcisco,
Try www.znline.com Kinda hard to navigate the site though.
I did a shocked fuse just for simplicity. Benoit's plane is beautiful but a little bigger than I like them. 850 mm span, 900 mm length..........used a LRK brushless, 180/210 grams.................. 65.00 euro.

That is sexy.

I wish I had the materials handy. And a workbench. And free time.

Anyway, looks great - flight report should be interesting.

Awesome again string!

I flew the Sortatensor tonight in NO wind and was practicing my F3ai in preparation for this plane. For fun I flew knife squares for literally 7 minutes without rolling out once. The graphics are AWESOME. Did you just print it on adhesive sheets?

graphics..

Yep.. just print um out on some very nice(super smooth finish) hammer bond paper..... a hp deskjet 3650 color printer(cheap)....... cut to fit the areas a little... and just 3m spray adhesive on. Works fine..... not waterproof..but holds fine and add very little weight.....easy and quick...
