You now need to mount the ESC, Radio, and Battery.I just use tape to mount the electronics. Since the dawn of practical RC flight in the mid 1960s, all models were powered by gas engines for outdoor flight.
Foam was used for non-structural sections of numerous RC model aircraft, such as a turtle deck, fuel drop tanks, or portions of a nose cowl.
This concept for RC aircraft design changed with the advent of micro radio control systems for model flight.
It now became an easy matter when building foam RC planes to include some reinforcement to prevent wing flexing or add fuselage strength. If carbon reinforcement is not available, wooden dowels or strips of plywood work well as substitutes.
The use of electric power precludes the need for any type of fuel proofing for a foam model plane. An inherent advantage of building foam model planes is the fact that you can design and build an airplane very quickly.

Foam is ideal for rapid prototype model construction to test different model design concepts. In summary, foam has always had potential as an inexpensive, easy to work material for building foam RC planes.
An interesting thing in its design is that I wanted to build a s large as possible model with powerplant I have in stock. I even made some aerodynamic calculations to check if my model will fly slow as I expected due its low wing loading. And amazing results from on board GPS logger, processed with seeyou software revield that expectations, calculations and ral flight data was done pretty acurate. This could be a confirmation that there is a real chance to calculate even real homebuild aeroplane. I bought my first rc when I was 10 and I still build them and fly them now I am 54 retired and this winters build is a 1\3 scale P26 peashooter. The first turn after takeoff looks like it was done within about 2-3 wingspans with about a 30 degree bank.

Beside dreaming of and designing ultralight sailplane, in my workshop is another RC model, 1:3,5 scale vintage school sailplane CIRUS HS-64.
I am sure that designing and building radio controll modells is very helpful as it gives oportunity to check own ideas, give oportunity to try new materials and technologies and you can refine your skills in workshop, as each of these can help a lot when it came to real planes. First, I had to splice two pieces of foam together, because the pieces I had were too short. Here's Clayton Greaves story on imitating a tried and true performer with his own foam working methods.
I've notice that the wing lacks the all-important aerofoil property that provides lift.
If I am correct your kite is pretty much at the peak since if scaled up into flyable real size that would be about 80 kg am I right ? Although, Just for the sake of arguement, and to be fair, Balsa repair really is not as bad as some would think(for a minor crash), but it does end your flying for the day.
