Next I cut 4, 1/2 in long peices of carbon tube that have a 6mm outside diameter and just over 1/8 inside diameter. I use a 6mm drill bit to enlargen holes in fuse for carbon. Fill the carbon with vaseline and put foam safe ca in holes in fuse an slightly recess carbon peices in fuse. let sit to dry.


Next I cut a piece of 3/32 basswood 1/2 wide by roughly 2 in long and another 1/4 wide by 2 long. Then use the hot wire to melt out the sections of foam around the elevator and rudder servo mount location. these will serve as hard points for the servos. (less slop equals better performance) as in pic below. and glue with polyurethane glue(for its gap filling qualities)


Next up I glue the wing spar in, I use fiberglass rod as this is what I have on hand. and I fill the landing gear mount hole with spackle and fill panel lines on wing with spackle sand smooth when dry (all my planes are usually belly landers as i have nice grass at my park to land on)club field is over 20 miles away.
