Just finished my Eddie. Built from Model Plane Foam with a 1600kv Blue Wonder motor, 9 gram servos,12 amp ESC and an Orange 4ch rx. Total weight before painting is 223 grams. Paint goes on tomorrow and maiden Thurs at the soccer dome in Brighton. Not planning on any combat but have been shot down before at this dome
Edit to add total weight includes 2s 850 mah battery.

I can't take credit for the pilot. It came with a WW1 airplane download from Fiddlersgreen paper models website. It's a little pixelated but I imagine when printed down to size it should look okay.

I made my side fuse reinforcements. I found a palet strapping made of fibers (kind of fiberglass?) and my tests were better than with plastic palet strapping. I glued them with a glue I find in discounts shops "Action" for 1 euro/ bottle ! Those shops are present in Germany, Netherlands, France and Belgium. Very good glue for Depron! Beware, watch the picture as in the same bottle shape they have 2 kinds of glue.
Works evenly as contact gluing and normal gluing on one side and watching for drying

I go often to Maastricht, it's 100 km away from my home and I appreciate this city even If I"m no smoker

Very clean building, Manu. I enjoyed Maastricht,(also 100km from here) but did not get the glue. Does not matter, I like working with Uhu Por and Hot Glue.

arcaknob: Your Eddie is very light! Already flown?

Thomas,
I flew it for the first time yesterday. Put 4 packs through it and it was great fun!
2- 850 mah packs and 2- 500 mah packs. I set my timer for 7 minutes and had no battery problems. Most of my flying is around half throttle.
First takeoff the plane wanted to nose up badly so I landed quickly and adjusted elevator pushrod. After that all was good. I could really slow it down and just float around the soccer dome.
The light weight might be because I am learning how to use glue sparingly and I also used 1X3mm carbon fiber flats instead of pallet tape. Carbon fiber pushrods also.

I weighted both fuse sides before and after gluing the palet straps: they added 14 grs total .
