Threw this together in Kerbal Space Program and it flies like an absolute dream, well enough that I'm half tempted to try to replicate it in DTFB and make it an RC! The canards, wings, vertical stab aren't very hard to figure out, but the fuselage is making me wonder what the best way to replicate it is. Ideas I've had:
* Use a cardboard paper towel tube as a core to form the foamboard around, permanent.
* Use a length of PVC, copper, iron pipe to form the foamboard around, but only temporarily, with the former being removed after the glue has taken a set.
* Square structural fuse with round formers and posterboard or heavy paper skin laid overtop
* Perhaps find a correctly sized heavy duty cardboard tube to work as a fuse on its own?
The cockpit's even more puzzling. I've had a couple thoughts of perhaps trying to get my hands on some conical drink cups to make it out of, problem is, it's a bit of a complex shape and the 'point' isn't at the centerline. It's a bit below centerline, to alot for the windshield and such. Might be better to get the fuse itself built, maybe even test fly it with a paper cone stuck on the nose, then get an actual 3D print of the in-game part made to attach?
