You can also push them in enough for the barbs to mark the wood and then pre-drill holes for the barbs if that's what's splitting the wood. I add some epoxy when they are inserted for good measure.

Any reason you didn't go with elevons? It's simpler and uses only two servos plus you can use the entire control surface (they are quite small aren't they.)

Are you using elevons or separate elevator and ailerons?

Nigel, that's LUNCH, that's what picnic tables are for.;-)

Seriously, a catapult would work. I use a fishing scale to set the bungee at 5x the model's weight.

Sweet! Good plan on the canard. Better to have it trimmed without the canard to see what it does.

Does that stiffen up the EDF plenum too? Is this going to be a belly lander? Skid plates on the plenum could serve double duty to stiffen the plenum while providing some abrasion...

+1 on that.

Unless you are running kW setups or making your own batteries, pick the style used by your favorite battery supplier and standardize on that.

I think the goal is to have the entrants do more than just assemble some premade parts (like an ARF "kit"). If the "short" kit is too complete, don't vote for that plane.

Having CNC cut wing cores would make things go together quickly. I've been thinking about doing one about 50% larger with retracts and EDF's and having the cores CNC cut for me.

Considering the amount of area inside the exhaust ducts, that's not that bad. I know you can build it light! It should be easier than the Concorde.

Awesome! A single larger fan is going to be more efficient than several smaller fans. Do you have any idea what the thrust is in open air for that fan or what the duct losses are?
