    Posted: 01/Dec/2011 at 11:25am
Hello all.
I am currently drawing up a 900mm F-27Q stryker-style plane out of corflute for some combat fun, but this is the first time I've worked with corflute. I've built a couple of profile depron jets and planes though.
I have basically got a top view of the stryker for the wing and a side view for the vertical fins and rough shape of the fuse.

I am hoping to get some ideas for applying the carbon wing spar/s. I have 6mm tube and some 3mm x 1mm strip
I was going to glue a 6mm spar to each leading edge then try to cut a slot across the wing for a main spar. The ribs of the corflute are running front to back by the way.
I plan to fly it hard and fast with the possibility of a pivoting motor for pitch TV so it needs to be rather tough...

Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Aefer

I use a brand of adheisive called Sikaflex 227 which is polyueraphane based adhesive. Its not that fast to set (like silicone sealant) but its really tough and flexible. Try running a big strip of coreflute running across the trailing edge and you can make a live hinge and elevon without the need to tape one on. Good luck!

Hobbyking has a Chinese glue

This can be used with both foam and coroplast.


But for spars, I would additionally fiber tape the edge and some selected area in the middle as well.

If you match the thickness of the coreflute with the carbon rods, you should be able to stuff the rod straight down the flute panel between the corrugations :)
