I was lucky enough to get 2 Rebel kits from the Predator. Here's the first one...
Edit: I finally got to DS her at Weldon and we clocked a 170mph on her maiden. She handles well at speed but kinda skids around on the frontside. Most likely due to the cut down elevons.
It's your standard 46oz combat wing build…
The Basics:
ribbon spar
strapping tape
monokote
winglets
balsa elevons

The extras:
additional fg arched rod spar (next time it will be carbon ribbon but I had to experiment)
carbon drag spar
Fixed TE, 4" inboard and out
balsa winglets
5 cell batt pack
4-40 linkages

Build thread here.

Update: New top speed of 180mph recorded at Weldon last Thursday.
