Funnyfoot, the plans should already have the templates for the kf2 on them. You can use super 77 spray or my favorite, foam tac to attach them. For both of them, add a thin coat to each piece and let it tack up, then join them carefully because they will stick! Also, if they are not symmetrical, you will need lots of trim for level flight. Then, I bevel my leading edges an sand them smooth.

Sure, I have KF3.5 on my F-22 6mm top 3 mm bottom, Works perfect!

If you are not using cf rod then I'd recommend 6mm top and bottom.

Can you epoxy the airfoil down

You can epoxy them, but you might need to spread quite a bit on to get good coverage. I have found this glue works the best, 3M Super 77 spray adhesive, plus it is much easier to apply.

You're making it harder than what it is...
If you built the F22 already, Im pretty sure to understand
the concept of gluing foam together.
Just use Hot glue. if that's all you have.
It's not rocket science...it's just foam.

You can get that at Wal-Mart or whatever hardware store.
It dosn't have to be 3m brand. I have a can of Loctite. I got that from Wal-Mart too.
Oh...btw, it's going to eat the foam if you spray too close, just like
any kind of spray paint.

Just tack with tape or hot glue to test them out...

If you're new...you're not going to notice the difference.
If you sand all the LE. the model will cut through the air better.
Glides better..ect so it's not going to stall as easy just the same.

If you bank too hard or pull up too hard..it's dons't really matter
what air foil you have. You need Power or thrust.


The f-22v2 is a floater of a tank already without the KFM.
It's just a 33" kind of stunt kite....
