Ls8 neo

Post by roo Hawkins »

I was not planning on building anything for a while. But decided I would like a smaller glider with electric motor so I can fly it any where glider . So I started a ls8 neo the full size is front electric system so will be scale. Was looking at the multiplex gliders but did not want to pay that for a foam glider even if they are good. When I can build a glass and foam veneer one for less. Span will be around 3.2 to 3.3

All the foam parts made but the fuselage snapped doing the hole for the wings. Glued all together again. Finshed with polyfilier. Ready for sanding.

Hi Roo, hope you and the Mrs. are well.
I'm interested to see how you are going to run the servo power and mechanics to the tail plane
and attach the fin to the fus strong enough to withstand landing loads etc.
