Hope mine flies as well as the rest of them! Almost done. Still need to put in the servo rods, landing gear, prop, ESC and receiver. Weighs 7.7 ounces (218 grams at this point). It has an Emax 2822 motor in it.

Went with a square cowl to make it look more like a D VII. Since I made it from MPF, which I don't think is quite as stiff as Depron, I put some 3 mm x 0.8 mm flat CF spars in the wings. Also added some vertical struts between the wings, it's pretty stiff like this!

I didn't make the front top deck removable, just left the bottom open for the battery.

How is everyone mounting their landing gear?

Here is a pilot I found somewhere on RCG. I just colorized him red and made a mirror image of him. I usually just copy and paste the pilot pics on a Word document and resize as required, print it out and glue to some foam. I wish I could have made him bigger on this plane, but his helmut would poke through the upper wing!

Yes, nice plane and pilot!
In the pic you see the ply on the fuselage bottom. I glue the uc simply with hot glue.

My solution in 4 pictures
Plate is 6 mm cadapac (depron with 2 cardbord sides), one side with 0.6 mm plywood ant sticks inside.
Tie wraps are very small ones

epilot, How did your laser test come out?

Fine. If I was doing production runs I would make some changes but for a one-off it works fine. I'm going to cut some strut strengtheners from thin plywood but haven't gotten around to that yet. Also need to draw a motor mount for cutting from plywood.

Couldn't find a male pilot willing to fly the 70s hippie style E/O shown in post 45.
So, a lady took over. She has a bad attitude, but that's ok for some dirty dogfight.
