EPP Plank


Pretty much finished building this plane. It ain't pretty but it sure is strong. AUW is about 14 oz and wing area is about 270 sq inches so WCL is about 6. Should fly. Got a tiny motor 2206 1400kv with a slowfly prop but thrust will be about 1:1. Going to be an interesting maiden.
Used some servo arms for the control horns.
Rubber bands holding wing on but may use bolts.
Rubber bands holding hatch on but will use magnets.
If it flies then will try a larger motor and proper prop.
Also would like to build second very flat wing to see how fast it will go.

Raining so much lately just cant get out to fly.
Finally got a proper headgear to hold my cell phone for taking video.

Nice build. Here's my attempt. Gonna try to fly it this week. I think it's going to be under powered, we'll see..... It's fun to build your own....

Thanks...The first few did not come out like this one.... I've got one more set of foam cores of those wings....Let me know if you want them, and I'll send them to you.
