"Stringfly" did a depron flat ptero. One with some form would be cool!

Agreed; a foam (EEP or depron) pterodactyl would be great.

Cheers

The GWS glue works fine, just put it on and stick it together and pull it apart and wait at least 10 minuted for you put it back together if you have time 20 minutes doesn't hurt a thing, I also pin-ed mine to hold it for a few hours, I all so use gorrila Glue , little more messy but stronger and besides I have just about run out of the GWS glue

Yes, you could probably crib a bit from the Marston ptero - I have a short kit that has been sitting in the corner looking at me accusingly for ages. Must get on to it, but these damn ARFs are always too tempting

Too much moment with such a short fuselage. You'll need a tail? Unless you are going for a wing-type aircraft. Also, I was thinking of a dual IPS-type EDF (fan) in the belly rather than a pusher. But let's work with this!

I bought two kits. I've got the first one finished and I'm going to give it to a club mate of mine. He should be able to maiden it in the morning. I'm able achive COG with a TP 1320 pack so it should be a floater.
I've started the second kit this evening and should maiden mine next weekend.

Maidened my Epp Eagle today. It is the Snow Wagle and it is the one built and modded for a wingbolt by Jiggiba.

What a stunningly sweet flyer! I haven't had a model make me grin like this since my old Tiger Moth!

Excellent Model FlyParty!

I was able to roll it and loop it with no problems..

Tone, can you post a photo of how the Snow Eagle looks on the bottomsides? If not just a description would be great. Much appreciated.
