Claus,
Two questions,
Is the baking paper used as a peel ply or is it now a laminant?
Are you going to put a bullet cone or stinger on the tail end of the fuse?

It is a very good natural peel ply.
i used it to make sure that the plastic bag did not gave me a bad surface.
it will be open in the end to make sure i can cool down the interior
there will come some inlets in the front.
I might come out with some insane flights on 7 S ... and i think that will be 160 amps.

a little tip that might speed the work.


i was looking at the bottom of the fuselage i just applyed glas and epoxy to.
I do have a heat lamp but no good way of placing it over the subject.
then i saw my teflon baking sheets, and my foil iron... and put two and two together,
I put one the baking sheet and played ironing foil onwith a little higher temp than normal for foil ..
After 3 times covering i could see that the epoxy was not shiny any more and touching it i it was like 3 hours in the hardening process.

It's amazing that a jet that looks so slim and sleek has all that space. A very efficient construction method!

the allmost finished wings.


Here are 1436 mm (56") wing and area enough for serious loads of transmitter and camera.

if wheather permits maiden on saturday!
wm 400 mk2 fan 2900kv motor on 6S and as a test, 48mm exit that is 60 % of fsa
That should give me close to 400 km/hour exit velocity (248Miles/hour)
