    Yeah they go fast for me at least. See a few things that need to be changed on the plans and on the plane. Not enough clearance for the elevator.

    That did not take long and it is looking good and robust.

    Lighter than I expected though after looking at it. Fuse weighs 11.242oz. For comparison an EE60 fuse in the same state is 20oz

    Used my dremel tool to rout a groove in the elevator right where the two halves meet. Then epoxied in a 1/8" carbon rod.

    Have a question have ever given it any thought of making the slab fuselage out styrofoam sheet and then sheeting it.

    IMG_0343.JPG I did this one that way. Thought about it on this but I decided against it. The way I fly on 20cc and smaller I fly them hard and dork them a lot. A built up fuse with a tube is easy to repair after a dork where as the foam fuse will not be.
    Pretty much a guarantee that anything 30cc and larger though that I build as a slab will get a foam fuse.
    I can link my probro build thread for the big edge if you would like to look at it.

    Man that does look good, must say those are my favourite colours. That is a 30cc done with foam. Like that. Where can I find the ProBro build would like to read through it thanks.

    A 35cc would pull this plane fine but I actually have a dle55 on the nose. Weighs 13.5lbs with the 55. I need to make a couple changes to the plane but it performs great. There are videos in this thread here. Also it's not much of a build thread but it shows the basics.
