I use hot glue to join the halves I would not use epoxy because it is brittle

PU works too but you will have to keep wiping the foam off the center..

Hot glue is a nice mix and does not seperate from the foam. I use a full heat gun but squezze a bit out and spred it on if it cools to much u use a mini torch to sofen it just before pressing together

Glued in the carbon spars. Cut elevon's,and hinged.
CK-What do you recommend for elevon width,and control surface throw.I cut my elevons 1.5"

After setting the feiagio ontop of the fuselage, something doesnt feel right. It keeps screaming more power!

Looks good Jason,If you find the elevator effect and rolls are slow you will have to extend the elevons a bit.See the elevons on the skyvak they extend back farther where the stabs straitn and compress the airflow.Ifit rolls slow then the tips should be wider too.

mrj, how about some bigger pics? I picked up one of these at MWE also. Trying to figure out where to mount the motor. I want to get a couple more, and a 25" also. I was thinking about trying a ducted fan on one also. So far I have the wings gooped on. Now I need to go pick up some TE stock. I'm also trying to figure out where to put the spars.

Swoof-
Decided to go sloping in the morning,so i took the motor off.I ran a piece of carbon fiber front to back in the center of the fuselage,i then marked center on the top of the fuse in between the vertical stabilizers.I drilled 4 holes through the fuselage and zip tied through the Epp and around the carbon spar.Last i used shoe goo to reinforce the Epp and the carbon where the motor sits.Trying to keep my build lite, as was suggested. BElow i added pics of how i mounted my 12mm brushless(with zip ties) and how i will mount my 20mm brushless.

MJR did you get a chance to fly it powered yet?
I flew mine on the slope quite a bit today in 25 mph wind it was a bit much for it weighn at 8 oz or so.
It flew pretty good on the slope but i think it will really shine w a razor motor or a himax 20 mm 4000 kv on 3s or somthin close to that.I will set mine up next week like that.

CK-ya i flew with the feiagio it flew nice but i had it a little nose heavy in gusty wind. Those cheap gws 3x3 props break when you glance at them,every time i'd land i'd break a prop.I've got my 4100 himax ready to go after tommorrow. What would you guess the powered version auw be? I'am right around 13oz with a 3cell1320 lipo or 2 1500 2cell and the 20mm motor.I dont have a wide enough selection of battery sizes to help with balancing the himax.I dont want to add weight i'd rather add battery.

MRJ thanks for the pictures. That helps a lot. I have a 2025-4200 would that work for a 20mm on 3s? If so what size prop?

2015 is the 20mm motor size, which is equal to 370 brushless. 2025 is 25mm? and is equal to 400 size brushless. My 370 size weighs 1.5oz.The 400 size may make it real hard to balance,but thats just my opinion it may be fine?

I'm still new to the whole brushless thing. I was planning to go with the Medusa Afterburner 12mm 5300 because that's what Chris recommended for a 2s which is what most of my LiPo's are. But I can't find anyone that has them in stock, not even Medusa. I guess if I'm going to run a 12mm I'll either have to go with a Medusa 4000 on 3s or get a Feigao 12mm. I understand the 2015 beig easier to balance, maybe I just need a bigger battery. *evil laugh*

got my fs and spanker today. love the fs. the other looks alot like my 26 minid core i got.

anyway not totally decided with the power, but i'm leaning toward the 110 arc motor and 2 910 3s parallel. should scoot. i've got a 20mm heat sink mount that mounts using a stick. and then i have a custom cdr hot wind that is a lot lighter. and a lspj.
