Maidened the wing today at the club with a little help from paul and justin (cheers guys), I'm pleased to report all went as planned with an almost perfect build right off the table to a good flying wing.
at 52 inches across it runs a 1790kv motor on a 7x5 apc prop, this pulls around 325 watts using 27 amps on full throttle.
The wing glides around on 1/4 throttle and only using 5 amps to do so.

Very happy with this one.

Its not depron scouse I finally made a hotwire so its made of eps, I know its not the strongest but with the reinforcing this one has it takes a beating and comes back for more.
New templates are cut out for the bad boy wing, this is gonna dwarf the one above Laughing

Wow even more impressive m8 , very impressed Very Happy

Choice of foam is not that important really , yeah epo and epp are stronger and glue better but they are also slightly heavier and cause problems with tape , eps is a good choice for a combat wing because its cheap pretty strong with a little help and its easier to get hold of.

Well done m8 Very Happy proper jealous Very Happy




** what was the problem with the above wing ? a 60 amp esc seems seriously excessive for a clean combat wing it should fly perfectly fine on an emax 2812 or similar ( read the titan thread http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1121604&page=2 )
