A5 ICON Sport Sea Plane

As most foam planes are easy to scratch and ding in transport, and hangar rash is not a good thing, I refitted the foam box to hold the plane with minimal assembly. With the landing gear still screwed in there needs to be 3 holes to let it drop through. The top cross brace needs a notch and a V cut for the prop so it fits down with prop on. There is a 3" piece of 1/4" dowel to hold in the wing tube, and a small foam wedge to hold in the elevator, T-tail. You may want to glue some strips of wood on the bottom or side of the foam box for more strength. A piece of 1/8" plywood and a handel on the wing tube side works well to cary with one hand.

I solved the tail wagging with some extra glue in the joint and a coat of epoxy on the botton and tail boom.
2 Blue LED's and a 680 ohm resistor in series powered from the 11.1 volt LIPO balance plug uses ~ 10 mA, so you can run it all day and night.
