Instructables

Screw to rubberband wing tie down conversion.

My FPV Raptor had a slight problem, the annoying screws that held the wings in place had ripped out. I need to find a new way to attach the wings to the plane. I tried a couple designs but at the end the most effective and by far the cheapest was rubberbands.

Step 2: Place wing on plane and mark drill holes

Very simple, just put the wing onto the fuselage and mark the front and back. Then mark drill hole at an uniform distnace below the first holes. I choose 1.5cm. NOTE: some bodies may not have a flat top surface, take this into consideration when marking holes. Mine for example had a .5cm rise. Thus two holes were 1.5 cm and the other two were 2cm.
