Engineered mold locating and joining system.

1mm Rohacell for the sandwich material in the finished fuselage.

My first decent size electric model. I might do my own contra gearbox, I mean how hard can it be!
If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. Lol.

Nah, just kidding. Would be well worth having a go. I haven't seen an exploded view of one, but I think there would be a fair bit of work involved. I'm a first class machinist by trade, so would be very interested. Post plenty of photos and give a good description of what you do if you decide to try.
