OK
Hobbyking foam needs 3 coats to basically be close to depron

That sounds very heavy and pricey

Hi wildthing
Finally tracked down some Adams ready board down here in NZ
Brought a box of 30 sheets
Over half are bowed --- just my luck
Can I straighten or just ignore?
Adams board 20x30 110grams
Hobbyking 500x1000 75grams
You see my problem

And having just read your post went back to my test piece with 3 coats and so hard it snapped so maybe Adams board for elevators/tails maybe main wing and paper off at KF2
About to do a profile Easy45 with the hobbyking foam minimal carbon and a coat of ModPodge and monitor weight at each stage

When you do your cf rods or whatever and glue them into place just make sure to weight everything down level and once the glue cures it should be level.

OK Wildthing
Joining up the SU34V5 plans for a new build
If I use hobbyking foam iam thinking of adding more carbon strip than rod with more carbon strip it should still be lighter than Adams readyboard which I won't need any reinforcements save the 3mm rod
What do you think?
