Built this plane for a Christmas gift to myself,  can't wait to maiden it also,

Looks good! Sometimes I wonder what with how much easier it is to get hold of cheap paper backed foamboard if this style of modeling is going to become more prevalent. The paper, though it certainly has weight penalties, does make it easier to mold foam to any given shape, especially smaller radii.

Looks great—let us know how it flies, please! How was the build process?

(Please forgive the mild hijacking . . .)

As for paper-backed foam board, Dol Tr has Adams for—you guessed it—a dollar a sheet. Wally World has Ross for 88 cents. With the paper on it is pretty rigid, especially when laminated. With one side of paper remove it makes great simple curves (compound curves if you’re patient). With both paper sides removed it weighs about 40% less than paper on.

(We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread, already in progress.)

Fly safe, stay safe.

I have been building rcpowers planes with foam board since he started his channel and they fly great, the foam board is actually very strong with the paper on it and you can take paper off on side and mold it very well,  I use flite test foam board so I don't have to use minwax to seal the paper. I use a 2200 mah battery and a super mega jet v2 motor from grayson hobby with a 50 amp esc, only two servos, 2 or 4 controls surfaces, that keeps it light weight.
