What actually holds the wings to the fuse during flight I see the square bar but is there a tape or something or just friction?

Also I think you could take this to the next level with some nice posterboard wing fairings there at the root.

Oh and where is the flight video? 😁

The wing spars are just held in with friction. Works very well.
Posterboard wing fairings is a nice idea. :)
Well, I do have the GoPro charged up, so the next time I get to go out to the field, I'll get a flight video. :D

Also, I have all the pieces cut for the build video ,( which will be the C47 version), just need to make some time to get it filmed / edited.

Great prototype maiden flight! looks fun to fly. I am looking through the plans and they look great! this plane is fairly complex

I was wondering why you chose to break the bulk heads into 3 parts? was it to engage the Fuse Center Plate and vertical fin/rudder? Does the tail former stack onto the Fuselage plate?

Thanks, It is a little complex, but I tried to make formers so it would go together easier. It is to get the tail section up high enough to be scale. I tried it without and it looked pretty bad. :eek:
Yes, the tail former stacks onto the fuselage plate.
