Default Supply goldmine & Coro Question - Help!

If any of you are thinking of a SPAD, but not sure where to get the materials, here is good news. Rona sells Coro in 2x4 and 4x8 sheets in multiple colours. The only problem is the don't sell 2mm coro.

Do I NEED 2mm coro for the DPS? Or can I get away with using only 4mm?

As well, Rona has Dremmel knock-offs for $35! Get 'em quick.

Finally, they sell both Canadian and American gutter pipe. They sell it in 10' lengths. If you're building the DPS, have them cut it into 4 equal 2.5' sections. They'll do it for you there.

You can do it out of 4 mil...I believe the debonair wing is all 4 mil. Maybe you could size for the DPS!!

All 4mm might be a little heavy wing loading for a DPS, i'd make a Deb but as a tail dragger and with a DPS style wing, it will fly like a big stick type plane.


make a DPS BUT add 3" to the fuzz length, 6" to the wing span and 1" to the cord
