    Sweet, thank alot for the fast answear

    Next questions

    So the Bays in the middle are pre cut and a mount for GoPro and FPV Cam will be available? How you get stability in the middle? Are there the well knowing Carbon Tubes between the bays? Do you have some pictures from builing it? No more adding riteweave to the front of the wings? So just laminate and give it a go? Servo Bays pre cut too? How much space is inside the bays? Will it fly well for example with 2x 4S5000? Will there be a motormount available also? What will be the final weight you think with this setup incl Gopro FPV Cam, Hacker A30, LRS OSD and all that stuff? What size of a FPV Cam will fit in the mount (Pixim Seawulf at SC200 is about 38x38mm)?

    Ya no more weave, no more 3 m 90 or just a lite dusting of the roots with 90 to glue them together , or locktite 200.
    This material is kinda like easystar type foam so you need not use goop and super hot glue and heavy solvented paints, lite coats of paint work great.
    PU and super glue and epoxy work great.

    This isnt epp and is slightly less durable by nature, and no weave also makes for less durability, so keep that in mind, but its way easier to build ,plus its lighter with more wing area, I did 2 new Zephs in 3 days.
    I am offering the cam box and skid rails combos too, woring on them with my cnc guys cut schedual at the moment.

    I will be doing some build vid and written directions here fairly quick, plus we are planiing to make a fpv build manual too work with building these.
    Plus we need to all share on our setups since the plane was designed around being setup in no exacting ways, just a group efforts in developmets of all aspects as we all add our 2 cents.

    The whole center can be used as is or fully modified for your bats and all gear.You can use the front bay for your electronics and you can place your batts to hit final ballance , I left the area between the servos and the LE to be able to place the batt where needed to nail the cg.
    The whole wing center section has ben fattened to give room for all kinds of mods.

    What you think how cheap (or expensive ) The Cam Box and Skid Rails will get?

    Keep up the great work

    @ royal

    middle bay fits 2x 4s 5000, you can also cut the batts into the wings like a trappy build
    mount for cam and go pro will be available
    no more riteweave or 3m90
    servo bays are molded in the wing
    carbon tubes? they have a fiberglass spar between the wings if thats what you mean
    motormount comes as usual
    a big pixim will fit

    the final weight is likely to be 10oz lighter than the epp build.

    Ah well, i thought it was carbon spares, sry for that it is 6 in the morning here in berlin and im still not sleeping For the CG would it be better to cut bays in the wings for the lipos or could i put them into the bay and still have enough space for the fpv stuff? And what would be the smarter way?

    probably better to cut them into the wings to leave room for FPV gear
