Help!

Coroplast PLane Help Needed?


I have a 4x8 sheet of Coroplast. It's right at 1/8" thick. I have a hankering to build a plane with it. Here's the problem...I've never used this stuff before. I am not a newbie to the hobby, just never used this stuff. Does anyone have any idea where I can get some plans for this stuff. I don't care what kind of plane (slow flyer, 3d, pusher..whatever). I would prefer to use only the stuff I have, and not have to get more in different thickness's.

Thanks for any help in advance!

thats awesome that you have the 2 mil, but you will need some 4 mil also, most spads need some, but luckily, the 4 mil is the easiest to get

If it is 1/8" that is 3mm. All of my 4mm stuff actually does measure out to 4mm which is .160" Maybe it is really 4mm. the more common stuff, and good for rudders and stabs etc.

aspeed is right, that does seem more like 3mil if you do the actual conversion to metric correctly....
