My Simple Scout Build

#1
In addition to building a Twin Sparrow into a dragon with my daughter (https://forum.flitetest.com/index.php?threads/father-daughter-flying-dragon.61406/#post-527694) I also started a build of my own today of a Simple Scout.

It’s going pretty well - can’t wait for the electronics to arrive.

I’m a newbie so I’m sure this will be the first of several models of the scout.

With that in mind I decided to make a modification and keep track of it for improvements over the various builds.

Basically I’m getting rid of the poster board and using the rolling technique I saw on the Corsair video to make the turtle deck out of foam.

Can definitely see where there’s room for improvement - need to take off less in some places but I kept some measurements so I think next time I can get it a bit closer.

For my first full build and an on the fly modification I’m pretty happy though.

That looks real smooth in foam. What's the difference in weight between the foam and the posterboard?
