FPV plane with a built up wing


Plane will look something like this. Wing span 190 cm, root chord 36cm, tip chod 33cm . Aimed weight around 1.5 kg (52 ounces) up to 2 is OK.

As I used the tite bond for bonding the d box sheeting, I first applied the glue then wait till it dries and reactivate it by heating. No need for weights on the sheeting.

Wow! Building things from scratch out of balsa.... A soon to be forgotten art!
Especially in this forum's section...

I admire you since I have lost my patience and luxury of having so much free time long ago.
Keep on posting photos from you build!

Thanks , I hope I will finish it in a month maybe a little more. Talking about time the worst part is cutting out the ribs. Video is actually speed up of 6 minutes and one of the 26 ribs.

This is how I prepare the shearwebs. First a shallow cut with a balsa stripper to mark the height then go deep with a razor saw
