If you want someone to test how durable they are I can sure put them through their paces lol

Well I'm in for sure now as I've just placed an order for a pallet of foam! So watch this space!

It will take 2 weeks for the foam to be manufactured so hopefully I'll have some initial cuts ready within the next month. I'll get some prototype pictures up as soon as possible, they will be cut from EPS insulation foam just for testing as it's much much cheaper (although horrible to work with).

So things are progressing well, and my foam arrived at the end of last week!



I was away all weekend though but managed some test cuts, this foam really is great quality! Will be cutting more this week and hopefully will have some teaser pictures to show shortly! Thanks for the support so far! :D

Nice - I hope you already had somewhere sorted to put them.  I know that I'd get at least two things removed from my body if I let my wife know that I was "just popping a few things in the spare room temporarily"

Ha ha, yeah I'm camped in my spare room just now but I'm on a short term lease and an eviction notice isn't far away I don't think. The foam fumes doesn't really help my case either! I will be relocating to the shed shortly, I've sorted a proper working area in there and foam storage!

So I've been promising some teaser pics so here we go!

This will be the first model, I've changed plan and going with the forward swept wing idea first.

So it's 1.2m wingspan, with loads of battery room and space for a full size GoPro and an FPV cam in the nose.

Still prototyping vertical stabiliser options but hoping to get some flight footage up soon!

Final dry fit and happy with the layout, so now for the proper build! Should be in the air by next week.

Ooh, I do like the look of that one :) If you can keep it wag free (I hate wag too!) then you may well have a sale here...

My brain got all confused then. It was like "it's a v-tail... no it's a wing.  It's a wing with a V-tail !"  That's your wag elimination thingy isn't it.

Looks great though, nice work
