Besides getting it glued together I haven't had a chance to work on it.
Did take a couple new pics though.

Re: MWFP EPP 42" Sbach 342

Got her out for a quick test flight. Was a bit windy for me.
Looking forward to trying it out on a calm day.

435grams ready to fly with a 3s 25c 1000.

Re: MWFP EPP 42" Sbach 342

My Sbach has survived my crummy flying very well.
I suggest anyone who has flown/crashed Depron to try EPP.
This EPP Sbach has gone to hell and back.. I hit a chain link fence at a good pace.
Little welders and its in the air again.

BTW the wings on these kits have a symmetrical airfoil.

I've cartwheeled mine multiple times and threw it back in the air. Couple chunks came out of a wing when it met the chain link fence.. Put the pieces in my pocket and glued them back on that night.
I have to add hinge tape. Welders glue (contact cement) isn't the most durable stuff when used as a thin hinge.

Another great thing is when epp gets bent you can use an iron or heat gun to smooth them back out.
I left mine in the car and warped the hell out of it. Little heat and hold and we were back in business.

Re: MWFP EPP 42" Sbach 342

Its has a slightly shorter tail than their yak or edge but can do most everything the others can.
There are a few vids at midwestfoamplanes.com

I learned a lot of the basics with mine. IMO the sbach is better to learn on because it isnt quite as easy to fly as the edge or yaks.
