    @Alex, how "rigid" are those specs?
    Could the wing be a "blunt nose" type ass long it as the same specs, 36'' wing span and so on?

    Personally I prefer the "blunt nose" as they provide a nice area to place the gear.

    For EPP I really like the Krylon Cover Maxx, good selection of colors and goes on great.

    No blunts allowed in the spec. I, too prefer the blunt nose, but the plane is so light and simple, you don't need the blunt anyway.

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    Nothing beats plasti-dip spray.

    Hi Alex,

    Ordered the wing from stone blue, got tired of my failed attempts at hot wire cutting one. I have a few questions though about the spec class. Mainly about the rules.

    1. Size, with the spec wing being 36 inches, are you going to allow others that are close in size (ie. 38 inch) to compete in the class also? For example the new wing from crash test hobbies.
    2. I am assuming motor used will be only the 2826/2200 or equivalant (ie. 350 watts)
    3. Battery only 3S?
    4. Do you have templates for both the root chord and the tip chord, or do we just upsize and downsize. Also I couldn't find the NACA 014 in the database, I did find an 015 though, would that work? I am going to be tracing the airfoil when I receive mine, but thought that info might help others.
    5. Do you have any proposed course layouts?
    6. Will this become an actual organization such as MultiGP?

    I know I will have more questions, but thats all I can think of at the moment.

    1. No. The plane MUST fit the spec. 36" +/- 1" Therefore 35-37". Crash Test has all of my files and can cut the spec wing exactly as I cut mine.
    2. Equivalent means 2210 stator and 2200kV. The Turnigy motor happens to be cheap and fits the bill, but if there are other 2210 stator motors with 2200kV rating, those would be allowed, too.
    3. 3S 2200 only for competitive racing. You can put whatever you want in it to bash around, though.
    4. It is a NACA 0014, but the image file is on the first post so you can just scale it however you need. NACA 0015 would be acceptable as well. Any fully symettrical with spec thickness is ok.
    5. I have a few. They will be published in coordination with MultiGP.
    6. Yes. Already incorporated and have elected officials as well as safety guidelines, ect. We are waiting for all the major races to finish before we roll out the 2017 race plan.

    Painting is done!
    Ended up using "Krylon for Plastic" as I had a bunch left over from a previous project.
    As someone else mentioned, the battery box cutout is farther toward the LE than the build video. The plan is to put those spars right through the edge of the cutout.
