foam wing covering
I am designing a new fun fly plane (46 to 53 size) that is going to have a 48" wingspan one piece wing made from white foam. Chord is 12" without the ailerons and its a fully symetric section.
My question: I am aiming for a CHEAP plane that will be built in numbers for me and my buddies to bang around (low hovering, tail dragging, maybe some combat too!) and do not want to spend too much time or money covering the wing.
I was thinking of using brown kraft paper and west sytems epoxy resin to cover the wing. Any one do this before and how was the result?
I am also open to other ideas, besides light weight FG as that is an option but I want to use just one coat of resin (no filling cloth weave, extra weight!) and then dress it up with some vinyl decals. Keeping it light..
