Replacement wing
 
I have the fuse left from my old Bubble Dancer, but the wing is torn-up beyond repair, at least by me. I am looking for a RES wing (in kit form) that I could build and adopt to my pod and boom fuse. I'd like a wing with a span of between 3.2 and 3.5 meters with three piece design so the center section can be bolted to the pod as is done on the BD. Any help in finding a good replacement will be appreciated. Thoughts?

How about a Yardbird 2 short kit from LaserArts/Mountain Models...

I have to agree with a new bubble dancer wing. http://www.mountainmodels.com/produc...roducts_id=189

I put a Mirage wing on my Bubble Dancer fuse. Its taking me forever to finish the BD wing!

Im really happy with how it flys :D

At 112 1/2 inches, its not quite up to your span requirements, but its a heck of a lot simpler build than a BD wing.

Short kit here:

^Nice work Mr.E, it does look like it should fly nicely too.

At 29 ounces all up - 4.5 oz/sqft - it fits the definition of floater pretty well :D

I would buy a BD short kit and build that wing.
