interesenting idea of material. suppose hard to bend, and need cuts to shape?
Your question on CG i suppose because heavier material you get more tailweight. thats says need more weight in front of the plane. . FT writes : Center of Gravity: 2 Inches (50mm) back from the leading edge.

This resource is a nice feature to find the approx. CG : https://www.ecalc.ch/cgcalc.php

I feel risky to take off the plane because its so much work i did on coroplast its really hard and weighs more but durable and cheap so I'll be checking for the exact CG and fly off Thank you for your reply and soon I'll post the flying pics
