Can you give the weight per square area of different thicknesses please? Also, is the lamination polyester film or paper?

Here's the weight per square area Sanjay sir:

1. 3mm (non-laminated): 139 g/mē
2. 3mm (laminated): 228 g/mē (+-5g)
3. 5mm (non-laminated): 258 g/mē
4. 5mm (laminated): 336 g/mē (+-5g)

Just FYI, the attached 39" (6.3" chord) wing with single side laminated biofoam weighs just 82 gms. Spar (single 3mm double laminated sheet + 350mm 3mm carbon fiber tube in the center)

@Sanjay Sir I use exclusively hot glue now. It have also used fevibond (synthetic rubber based adhesive), but not directly on the foam. Only on laminated surface. That also works very well. However, you need to wait for some time for the glue to dry before sticking and also need to bit careful so that the glue doesn't drip on to exposed biofoam. Application is bit tricky also. With hot glue too, you need to be careful. Look for transparent glue sticks. Not slightly opaque ones. Transparent ones flows easily. Too hot glue guns will melt the foam. 60W is fine.

@rajsigma Thank you Rajesh Smiley

@K K Iyer Thank you Iyer sir Smiley I'm honored Bow

@johnywalker8pm @niteenk Shipping any place within India for one box is Rs. 330 through FedEx surface mode. Please note that shipping will be same if you order 12 pieces or one piece as the carton is same size. Hence the quantity of sheets is fixed. 16 pieces of 3mm/12 pieces of 5mm.

The wing you see here, was made out of 3mm laminated sheet. It's quite strong but the control surfaces flexes a bit. Not checked the weigh but it's light enough. 65mm laminated will make a very strong wing but will weigh more. Or you can make the body out of 3mm and control surfaces out of 65mm.

Sorry! Corrected. It's 5mm. Actually it's little over 5mm (may be 5.3mm). 3mm sheet too is little over 3mm.

just for checking the prices including shipping I did one small test I added the 3mm non-laminated and 5mm non laminated biofoam with shipping it came to rs. 1970. We get 28 sheets at the price of each coming to something around 70. Enough for building 20 planes. So 100 rupees a plane which is perfect.
