ASW 17 have 2100mm wing span.

For engine mount, I use this part

and carbon tube put in to. This and tube mounting under wing using few belts, and small part of glue.

Flying time is very good, but hard to check this, this is very fresh, so now I'm making only experimental flights test checking stabilization, max/min speed, groving alt, landing, maneuverability etc. All is better than I expected.

You can fly 50km/h using 20-30% of thrust, take very very low ampers, so it's give long time flight. Two engines on glider is very great solution!
Using ~60% thrust i had 110km/h with little wind, more than i expected.

If you use 4S power, and bigger engines, it will be mega fast!!! :-)))) I used 3S and smaller engines for little fast long distance.

In my short movie You can watch (last scene) ASW have only 80km/h and how fast this is and sound great!

How is your GoPro held on there, did you drill through the rear cover to attach it to the plywood plate behind it?

you can use them either way, they just have a little better performance on the Ground. they simply reject more multipath.

plain old spray paint... Just keep your distance for the propellants to dissipate. They are what cause the dissolving effect.

I've used the non-waterproof back door and zip tied it to the plywood. drilled 4 pairs of holes for the zip-ties, will take the gopro off and take another pic if you want.

No need to take a picture, I udnerstand, very simple. I always considered truncating the front of my EaasyStar but never actually did it. I will take another look.
