Fitting the wings. The wing were cut on a hot wire. Dihedral is 1.25" in 20"
Now comes the decor. All latex paint and some foam safe enamel
Finished decor ready for test flight
Update: Test flight proved that not near enough throw in the rudder. I was to impatient and tried a maiden in 7 to 10 mph gusts("Knot Head"). She went over and lost control. Broke the fuse in half in front of the cockpit, But now she has new control arms and some epoxy and ready for the next test flight.
New servo arms with more throw and 2nd round of test flights. Hit the ground after 30 seconds of flight. Broke the fuse in half behind the cockpit. Going to redesign the fuse now for better strength.
