Well knee op done
No walkies for a week
F35 v3 first up
Experimenting with hobbyking model foam ( about all I can get in NZ)
The SU35 V5 would wipe off elevons or snap off vertical stabs even on my best landings tried BBQ skewers now experimenting with double thickness verticals and carbon strip in elevators
Gone from 3mm to 5mm carbon tube to stiffen it up
Think carbon strip is the way to go with hobbyking foam its cheap light and accessible (no paper backing)
But nowhere the quality of hobbykings own glue-n-go profile kits (I have F35 kit) that foam is phenomenal but they won't stock it
As it sits bare airframe @ 300 grams

No mate just propslot at this time
Still trying to get a reliable airframe out of hobbyking model fiamboard
Most I've had is 5 flights before the foam broke up
But I do have 141% F35 RCP plans that's just begging for an EDF

Going away from APC props too get less amps draw and longer flight times out of TGS props
Note thrust better torque and flow at lower power settings
Check out RC pirate on your tube

I hope your leg gets better quickly so you can get out to fly.
On my F35 v3 I used coloured packing tape on the fuse and it held together pretty well.
After applying the tape I used a hot iron to shrink the tape and it also makes it stick really well.
You have to be careful not to burn the tape and melt the foam, so experiment on scraps.
Wot, no Depron?

Yeah but the paint doesn`t add any strength like shrunk on tape. It also holds all the foam together in a crash.
