Indoor 3D plane for me to crash

Complete apart from motor (in post as the one I had was the wrong KV), ESC, receiver, battery and wheels. The wheel attachment is horrible, so I will 3D print my own bits.
Will be a 2208 1400KV motor with a 500mAh 3S pushing an 8x4E motor.

Can't say I enjoyed the build, the 5mm EPP foam is like building with wet cardboard, only lighter!

Look great in the photos.


I have built 6 of the 5mm EPP 3D planes the lighter you can build them the better they will fly. I have never put landing gear on any of them just to save the weight even thou the landing gear is all carbon, just another thing to break. First thing I learned on the EPP planes is never use a glue that dries hard, as the joint cannot flex some and breaks apart very easily or tears the EPP. The glue I like the best is Beacon Fabric-Tac very flexible and will not let go..

Good luck on your first flights be sure and keep your throws down until you get a few batteries thru it and give us a report on how it flies.
