Superslo28" Build,Tip,Tricks thread!


Ok everyone I'm building the Superslo28 by sloper steve this was a plane that I was told about that used to be found on Steves Website.
Sloper Steve was the first Guy Using EPP for planes and I want to say started the trend for a different kind of foam in the hobby.

Sdparkflyers.com page This build starts after you have printed and cutout all the Epp foam parts

Ok so the first thing that you will need to do is Download the free plans for the Superslo28.
The free plans can be found on my website at http://www.sdparkflyers.com or in the photos below.

You will need to print the plans out on 8 1/2 x 11 sheet paper

The Foam used to build the plane is 1.3# 9mm EPP foam
a sheet 18 x 36 is required to build the kit If you need help finding EPP foam PM me...

For people wanting a complete list of parts for the build here is a updated list of parts from my friends at Hobby King

These are many of the items I use on my planes..
Motor
Stick mount
10amp esc
5g Servo for the Elevator and Rudder
9g servo Ailerons
Props 9050 type
Prop saver
7.4volt 350mah batteries

Hardware
Control Horns
tape for hinges


I do offer EPP Plane Kits from time to time PM if interested.. or send me a email.
Kits cost $40
$ contact me for ordering USA Delivery Only tallguysd@gmail.com
Shipping is about $13-15 for all items.

OK so in the pictures below I have cut out all the parts The next step I do is cut all the 45 angles on the Ailerons/Elevators and the rudder.

Then I make sure that on the wing section I want the 45 cuts on the top side of the wing so I flip the wing over and mark 2 1/4 inch down from the front tip of each wing lay out a piece of 3mm carbon and make a couple marks for a center line.

I then use my dremel to cut the slot. (this is my favorite method fast and clean)
after I cut the slot I test fit the carbon and cut to length. I don't glue the carbon until all the slots have been done this way I can do it all at once, I use Foam tac glue to build all my kits.

I then tape all the parts of the wing together and set it aside and move onto cutting the Elevator and rudder parts.

I repeat the carbon process on the elevator and set it aside

the last part I cut is the Fuselage I use a pieces of scrape foam to make sure the thickness of the wing slot and elevator are the same thickness of the foam. makes for a perfect fit.

I then repeat the Carbon process again for the Fuselage (I use 3mm for all the carbon parts) on the fuselage you can put it on either side.

NEW 7/12/2016

I have a few Kits as seen in this video Cost per kits are $40.00 plus $9.99shipping USPS (USA Only )

Tallflyer...

Rain in San Diego?? Somebody alert the media!

I like the Superslo's, I've tried to make 2 now and they were cool, but just didn't fly correctly...I did something wrong...

Are there any "precut kits" of these babies that I could just plug my servo's, esc, motor, and battery into and fly?

You could attach the carbon to the side but for extra strength if you cut foam with a soldering iron or some people use a mini saw blade to cut a grove i use my Dremel and then use a thin coat of epoxy to install the carbon its rocks solid.
