Build Log - Airwork Silent 3D EPP build and review
Some fine built up EPP planes are appearing on the market.
Airworks was nice enough to send me a plane to review.

The Airwork Silent is pre-built.

The wing is made very nicely with EPP ribs and a total of 4 flat carbon for two rigid spars.
The fuse uses the same technology.
The plane is mosty 2.5mm or so 1.9# EPP which is great.
1.3# EPP will does not work well under 3mm.

The ailerons and rudder are two layers of EPP with carbon sandwiched between.

The manual is for a similar plane. ************************************************** *********************

Listing components to be used is the next step.
I'd like it light but to go for a little more power than the 24g motors.

Thanks Chellie! Followed your 'Big Bipe' thread and loved every minute. This is a little new to me, I'm a balsa guy being re-educated.

Can you help me find the CG position of this plane. The only manual I could find was written in some strange dialect of English that I couldn't understand, although it mentioned something about 1/3rd plane, whatever that means. I suspect my plane is seriously tail heavy.
Thanks

Start at 1/4 to 1/3 of the way between LE and TE. It will fly. Adjust to suit your flying style.
I've pushed CG as far back as 47%... but that is rare.

The confusing term normally used is "MAC" Mean Aerodynamic Chord. Its a technical term that means at X% MAC X% of the wing is in front of the CG. For a basically rectangular wing (as with this plane) you can just go by the wing root (where the wing meets the fuselage) and you'll be fine.
