Took out the new Carbon Xploder today. Flys great and the maiden was uneventful. Weighs the same as my glass Xploder and all settings were copied over to the new plane. Thanks to Craig for the killer deal!

Dutchy Dawg Reno racer in process. Cores are 40lb blue foam, RG14 airfoils.
layup is 4 oz unicarbon with 1.2 glass over it. LE is hard balsa. I was going to use spruce or bass, but didn't have any in the shop..... but I did find some of the hardest balsa known to mankind ( no idea why I had this? ).
Wing panels are 3 1/2 oz each right now and very stiff. Yes I know it's a light layup for this type of ship, but I wanted to try it out.
