might pretty much eliminate the torque roll from the frame. its going into my next plane! (I would love to use the F-22 as a test platform actually)
Not enough Watt output. Need around 600 watts.

Yeah, the $35 G40 option looks like the best.

Ordered my motor...checked home depot for foam. All they have here is one with foil on one side and plastic on the other and of course they have pink stuff. I bought my dowels and spar...

My Home Depot looked at me crazy when I started talking about pink foam, fanfold, blu cor or anything but the R-Tech and foil type.

It all kinda depends on the WEATHER in your area and what the contractor need/want.

My search for Blue again today ended with ZILTCH !

I' will look around in the Portland area again tomorrow.

Do you leave the binding on the foam?

For the stuff Otto used the BINDING stays ON !
It would be way too flimsy with it removed. I just Expanded bead type foam.

The XPS ( extruded) foams stiull have a thin film on them. At least the Pink does.
ANd I remove it for two reasons.
1. it is a lower temp plastic and melts on my Router bit when I'm cutting it.
2. it leave a messy edge when left on and easily peels off
so I presume very littel strength if kept. AKA NO benifit.

BTW Sprnt the day on the river yesterday, however,

I am almost done with my F-22 test build.
Every thing is hinged and I have servos installed.
I'm getting around 600watts with a 9.5x6 MAS prop.

more l8r

So stay tuned.

What sort of "Blue" are you looking for? There are gobs of 1/4" Dow PBII in the Portland area, $38 per bundle.

Just returned from Shipping out another The Twins kit to N.H. !

K2xr10:
1/2" is the thickness that Otto used for his YF-22 and the F-15 and the Sea Dart.

I can get Pink OC brand at Homedepot.

But locally all I see stocked is 3/4" blue or thicker.
I dont WANT to have to hot wire split thicker sheets.
Allied says they either have it or might order it.

But you know the SUPPLIERs song.
Buy a LOAD or go away ! NO sympathy for low volume guys like me.
I'd sooner make them out of 9mm Depron if that's they way they want to play.



But hey ... I thought you were on the ID/NV boarder ?
That's 3/4 of the St of OR away from Portland.
