Serious deformation appears in the nose of sky surfer X8 after countless bad crashes. On this newly assembled sky surfer, with carbon fiber reinforcing, I think it is also necessary to do some reinforcement in the nose.

I use fiber cloth covering around in the nose and use 1:3 Epoxy resin adhesive smearing evenly on it. It drys in about 2 hours in the sun.

To get better protection, weight increases again, LOL

The cabin space is small in X8. If you install with OSD and other FPV devices, it will be trouble when you replace the battery. But anyway, it is a nice aircraft.

I use 2mm carbon plate on a SKY surfer (2m wingspan) today for reinforcing. At the cost of weight increase, I'd prefer to get buffering protection to the aircraft in case of crash. At least I think so. Of course, nobody wants a crash.
