Has anybody folded a foam board wing with both surfaces of paper removed? What disasters await? I’m thinking of doing one to shave weight and taping outside surface prior to folding the leading edge. It will have a full length light weight carbon/balsa spar system.

Thanks

Often, that's how you build with depron. Must tape one side before any bending.

I did it , one length of tape is enough to protect the foam from cracking over the fold.

Works well. And with the dollar store foam board I think the paper weighs more than the foam. So shave weight it does.

Could this be considered a scratch built foamy? It's built almost entirely of blucor fan fold foam board.
