Used hot wire to give aerofoil shape and then laminated them with 80 micron sheet.
This technique give super strength to it and it is quite resistance to twist and banding.

Now i installed 128mm aluminium and 4mm cf rods to provide strength and iut is capable to take much payload.
Because of it's huge size i need to keep it detachable so i designed a female section od these robs in solid works and then printed them on 3d printer. I'll share .stl file.

Added fins and completed the nose section. It is 11" wide so plenty of space for big batteries and cameras and of course the Pixhawk. It is really huge and very light weight. I'm expecting it be around 3.5Kg with 21Ah 6S battery. And having flight time at least 2hrs.

Hello Antirksh,
Long time.... Good to see you back.

Where do you get this 80 Micron Laminating sheet and how you put it on Thermacol.

Also close up of that 3d printed OD for Spars.

Well I been into aeromodelling since I was in School....  had won the "WINGS Open" at "Bombay" (as it was known then) in 1985 for control line aerobatics (was doing my graduation at that time) and had received a big gold trophy....  Mr Bhivandiwala organised it and gave good awards.
Our team had won the following medals:-
1.   Gold for Control Line Aerobatics
2.   Silver and Bronze for Control line speed
3.   Bronze for Free Flight Glider
Sharma Models helped us train to win the medals
