I just finished doing test glides and painting/markings. I'm calling it the Daedalus OTV, with wing and tail based on the X-37B but using BT-80 and PNC-80BB. AUW is 10.5 oz rtf with an E-6. This is my second model using the model plane foam(MPF) which is white and works like depron, but slightly softer/flexible, but with a through the tube wing with a spar it seems very close. 24" wingspan, and 32" length from nose to end of the tube, about 34" with tail sweep. Instead of centering rings, I just used foam strips glued around the motor tube to center it, very light and very easy to do.
