    20" x 30" full sheet of adams (dollar tree) foamboard weight approx 120g. The downpipe will weigh more but I guess you could save weight of all the bits to reinforce the foam tube. In the UK we only have 65mm square pipe and that feels a lot heavier that the 30" depron tubes I have made.

    Don't be tempted by the aluminum downspout.... While it is much lighter than the vinyl, it's metal, and I'd expect it'll give interference to R/C and video links. But darn, it is light.....

    We have aluminium drainpipe in the UK, is that the same ? I will stick to the 75mm pvc square pipe.

    Anyone here still flying this platform? I was curious if anyone has experimented with the wings, namely the rear wing. I mad a peace drone using the wing form the Synapse and so far it seems to work well. I did make the wing fold-able of course and increased the vertical stabilizers a bit from the regular Synapse size. With this combination, the plane tracks MUCH better than with the standard PD wing as the tips are further aft of the CG and pivot points. If I find my camera, I will snap some photos to give an idea what I am referring to. I am going to step things up a notch and use a 4s 5200mah battery with the 3536 1000kv motor and 9X6 prop. This should give a nice increase in range and speed.

    Wish me luck.
