The milled planes arent any less durable than non-milled planes.
These super light F3P planes arent designed to withstand a ton of abuse anyway.

Nice.

Looks like you put it together in one day! My projects always drag out. Did you fly it yet?

What are you guys holding the template to the Depron with to keep it from moving around?

The pieces of the plane are put in place and then small depron scraps are used around the perimeter to hold them from moving.
