I had some bits and pieces sitting around...
Should be a bit more robust than a glass model.

Wings from my FlyFly ASW-28.
Fuse and tailplane based on SPAD principles:
aluminium channel fuselage with 5mm coreflute tailplane.
HS-85MGs in the ailerons.
HS-225MGs destined for the rudder and elevator.

Work continues...

Spektrum AR6250 Rx
4 Cell 2000mAh Eneloop flat pack
2 X Hextronik HX5010 twin bearing standard servos.

Servos moved forward approx. 5mm.
Extra carbon spars at wing tips.
380g of integrated fixed lead ballast.
Elevons are 5mm coreflute with a shaped depron lower side.

Maidened in 65km/h plus South/South Easterly at Hollowback on Sunday.
2nd prototype stabiliser was added after initial stab creased at the base due to an "interesting" arrival while I was trimming on the second flight. (Terminating in a huge fresh cow deposit).
Started with positive reflex, now has added nose weight and negative reflex.

Fun!
