Correct, no need for the longer arms. My only tip is to let the glue dry on the CA hinges. We're all used to CA hinges in balsa drying in like 2 seconds. I had to leave mine sit for about 15 minutes using medium non-foam safe CA.

ok, I had *thought that it would intermittently drop a wing real quick every once in a while, not a constant roll you have always correct.

I'm looking into this.

I don't think anyone used the 3dhs arms. In fact on the rudder I used the second most inner hole @ 140 or so EPA. But I would like a few degrees more on my elev, but I think it would be perfect the way it is if I had the 72 in there instead of the 103.

Oh and it's a pretty quick build. No wiping up excess CA drips on this one!

The thick CA dried really quick I should have put it in first, so now I just put more thick CA around it and I am going to cut that tip off. oh well.

Hmm, I used welders on my landing gear, figured it would be stronger.

I used 30 min epoxy - brushed it on the front and back of the landing gear structure. To access the back of the landing gear structure, I cut a hole in the EPP from the top (battery tray). If you're neat about it, you wouldn't know there was a hole there after you reseal the hole. I didn't care so much about being neat.

Over 24 hrs because I had to wait for the PU glue to dry.

I have lots of epo and eps foam planes but this is my first epp. Cant say i am a big fan of this type of foam. Is there some benefit to epp? Seems to flexible to me.
