I found this interesting so i thought I would share!
3D Flight
What does 3D mean?
The simplest way to explain it is any maneuver done while the wing is fully stalled.... It can be a tumble, a hover, a decent with the nose
at 45 deg or almost anything else where the wing is not creating normal lift for flight, rather the engine thrust and flight control surfaces
are doing the most work.
What makes a plane 3D capable?
All the 3D maneuvers are mixed up with conventional aerobatics to make a breathtaking routine.... But unlike other types of flying, a
specific plane is needed. To fly 3D, you have to have a plane that's has lots of pitch and yaw control. Elevators taking up 50%-60% of
horizontal stabilizerís surface are a must. They need to be able to travel to 45 deg in either way. The same is true for the Rudder.
Ailerons should also be large, but will require less throw than the rudder and elevator.

Long story short.... built my Smart dart wing with peeled white Dollar Tree foam board & glued the halves together with Gorilla Glue.
Then glued the FFF profile fuse to the wing assy using welders.
FFF
Foam Board
Fully cured and hardened GG

Welders Glue ate all 3!!!
Use Welders on EPP only! would be my advice. Now I didn't have it on Depron but I highly recommend testing it out on a scrap piece first.

Only good thing that came out of my experience was that I had tape and needles holding it all together and was able to let it sit over night. The Welders left huge craters throughout joint, but I will say, what was left is solid as a rock. The plane survived but only because I was able to hold it together. While the welders was still wet, it was a mess. The dihedral totally laid out flat.

Just be carefull !

rkk - for hinges you might try Liquid Nails sold at Lowes and Home Depot. Not as strong as Welders, it will not eat Depron.

More specifically, Liquid Nails Perfect Glue. I am pretty sure other Liquid Nails products will eat Depron.

I have got some welders glue but I think lo temp hot glue hinges work super and are very quick - no waiting for the glue to dry - just a minute to let it cool.

It's very easy. Just set the difficulty to beginner. The speed will slow down to about half. RF is great for learning 3D.

Dumb question. Can someone tell me which way the plane should turn when you move the rudder stick to the right?
