Joe, that's a sweet little plane you have created.

Just started to design a drone using foam board materials.

I noticed you have a 31" wing span. Dollar Tree Foam Board (what this thread is about) is only 30". Then I saw where you said you used Depron for the wing......... Is the entire plane Depron?
Any idea how much it will weigh compared to Dollar Tree Foam Board?

I must have missed something - "box fuse"? I don't see anything boxy about that work of art. Looked at the build thread and I think I get it, lol. Nice work.

I've gone corner to corner to make a 32" wing Infineon Bipe. It uses a little more foam but hey, for a buck its well worth it.

Excellent! Thanks........... just thought of another question. Going corner to corner will put the waves in the foam board on an angle. Did you alternate angles on the top and bottom wing?

I didnt have any problems with waves on my foam board. I airbrushed the bottom and the topsides are Taped. I have a 1/4" wood dowel on the bottom wing and plastic strapping glued to the LE of the wings in place of carbon fiber and it works just fine.

Hi! I use wooden dowel, That is KFM2, flies great, much stable than smaller version, post some more pictures so you can get the idea.

Hi! Thanks, I use permanent markers(sharpies) and some very cheap $store colored duck tape, I find this tape in local dollar store in Canada I think it was Dollarama, this is much lighter then ordinary duck tape but very sticky, works like a charm on dollar foamboard, it says on the label made in Taiwan. I post picture for you.
