    With foam safe you normally won't need the drying agent ...aka kicker. If it touches foam or your fingers it is essentially stuck.

    That's mainly why i try to avoid thin if i can get away with it.... it's like water. I just hate sticking myself to my projects.

    OK, the pre painted elevons in place, time for the carry-over Emax MG servos.

  4. LOL, been there done that. :D .

    I have the medium but will have to read the label and see if it is foam safe. I know the thin I use to have wasn't so I just thought they all ate foam. ;)

    Luckily I have the perfect plane when to speak to somebody when flying.
    So stable!

    Time for the 3mm Upper Wing panel.
    This time by Depron instead of EPP.

    Interesting... my first build i used 3mm depron for the top skin. My only rub was it will tend to show waves on the surface where it has been glued to the ribs.

    This build i decided to go with 6mm skin for that reason.

  9. I used DTF with paper peeled off and it came out great!

    Tom,
    Yes, that's true, waves are clearly visible, but still less than 3mm EPP. The EPP weighs less and is more flexible for complex curves. No EPP 3mm left here at home, so Depron was my only choice.

    :)What thickness and weight compared to the corresponding thickness of Depron?

    :)OK, the 3mm lower nose part in place. Time to repair and then modify the old crashed nacelles from the first one the same way I did with number two. To fit vertical stabilizer motor setup.

  13. The thickness is ~3.8-4mm when paper is off... i would guess the weight would be closer to the 3mm depron... feels like the weight of 3mm depron but don't have the actual numbers.

    nice malukk,
    It sounds like a good choice, and probably cheaper than depron over there!:)

    OK nacelle repair job done. The vert stab nacelle modification is a simple nut to crack, just to copy what I did on my other MiG.

    I made a smaller battery compartment, no use for the original when the battery has to be placed further back to reach the correct COG.

    Battery and the R/H ESC in the old one.

    Yeah, Tom! Love the flexible control rods. Glued down, the dubro micros are plenty stiff but the main thing is mounting servos for CG and looks, then routing the rods wherever they need to be. Beautiful!
