Why would you want to use a CNC machine to make wings and fuselages?  Surely it’s cheaper to buy models than build a CNC machine.   

Yes, it can be to start with but some of the big EDF jets made from foam can be quite expensive. I’ve seen a few crashed beyond repair at my flying club.  The first flying wing I built with the machine flew fantastic until I crashed it, well I crashed it a few times but the last one was its final.  So power up the machine and cut some new wing cores and I was back in the air in a few days.  I made a video series showing the build of the new wing here

Another reason I use my machine is to build models that you can’t buy or if you could they would be very expensive.  I really enjoy researching and designing my own and there’s some very good software you can use now.
