DIY Canard Airframe 01

After much calculating over the evenings this week, I decided to go back to my roots and build something simple. I really wanted to build a twin boom pusher airframe, but it seems like my ideas were very heavy and not good for flight.

I then watched some flite test and experimental airlines to get some ideas, and the Ansley Peace Drone came up, and I thought hey, why not, let's build something similar.

To keep things more on the lighter side of the spectrum, I'm going for a fuselage mainly made up of DTF (Dollar Tree Foam/Readiboard) , with plywood used to build sections that need to be rigid. For example, the motor mount.
