Default FPV Flying Wing

I've been slowly working on a flying wing for a couple of friends. The wing is nearly complete, save for installation of electronics, a bit of fairing work, and a paint job. It is made of foam insulation board and very lightweight fiberglass wetted with Minwax Polycrylic.

Here is a link to the build:

All of my landings are three point landings if you count the spinner, too

Default MWWBPC?

Teach

I take it the PC you used was water based?

How did it work for you?

How does it compare in strengh vs. epoxy?

Thanks in advance!
Regards
Jimmy

I used Minwax Polycrylic. It seems to work just fine. The glass is extremely thin, so it probably doesn't contribute all that much in terms of strength. If I were to use a heavier cloth, I'd probably use epoxy. But, I'm really happy with the Polycrylic in terms of surface finish and protection from dings and dents.
