Default Outlaw Construction

Man,
I am glad I am NOT posting my pics yet.. yours looks so much better! I had trouble sanding the leading edge, with the 1/16 sheeting being so thin, I was not careful enough to avoid not sanding it.... So... its really thin near the leading edge. My solution was to wrap the leading edge with two inches (wide) of fiberglass tape, and then sand it smooth.. It actually is incredibly strong and did not add much weight to it. Hopefully it will help it with any "minor" crashes.

Finished wingtips, and about to finish rudder, and elevons.... servo and receiver mounting

For the hatch, I bought 4 camlock connectors which have a spring lock. I will try to use these on the hatch to make it strong, yet easy to remove..
