Dan, I was doing the composite parts thing in the late 70's/early 80's. I got the idea from doing full size boat work. Then I went to a Fly-in at Winter Haven, Fla in the early 80's. There was Bob Violett using the same thing in his jets. He later went to using end grain balsa and carbon cloth. Called it Magna-Lite. Great minds think alike, I guess.LOL

But was used for yrs in boating. You can bolt to the stuff and weight loss is very high. Light planes bounce better...

I'm sure you will succeed in your design!
