Finally got started, the wing is skinned with wiring inside, but I'm waiting for WX to improve so I can go out and sand and glass it. (Thanks TS Issac!) I am planning on using ladies NYLONS as glass cloth to keep wt down.
I lightened the wing by reducing skins to 1/16th vs 3/32, holes in ribs and nacelle ply, but added wt by webbing out to the nacelle ribs to add support to fuse with batteries.
Plan on using 2 x 45 size motors with 3 blade props, 80A ESCs and 4s 3300 lipos. Should result in 1600 watts on 12 lbs.
Any comments will be appreciated.
