For the very few of you who were interested, here are some more pictures from our project, which when compared to the hundreds of amazing things you guys do on this site, seems pretty low:





















In case anyone's wondering, the material we use is twinwall, kind of like the plastic version of cardboard (two plastic sheets connected by flutes running between them). The thing is, I know they're used alot for SPADs but not so much for slightly more complex things - is there anything about twinwall we've massively overlooked?

I know this has taken ages (we only get an hour a week to work on this :( ) but we've nearly finished the wing and the fuselage, but there's still so much to do - at least it'll keep me occupied for the next few months at least.

The only thing you might have overlooked is how heavy coroplast (thats what we call it up here) is..It is very strong, but heavy and as you have found a bit difficult to work with.

I look forward to seeing your finished project. Will it be electric or nitro powered?

We're currently going for electric-powered, but we'll definitely be thinking about upgrading the power and fancy stuff onboard when we've got the basic framework with autopilot sorted and finished.
