My buddy has some tape. I will ask him what kind of brand it is. I'm pretty sure it is nothing special.

The second half is in the bag. At the location of the trowing peg I bagged two layers extra 54 grams glas.
So, with just glass, homebrew carbon spar and tapehinges, this wing is very basic.

(it is very off-topic but like to share it. I'm now expirementing with spreading a 24K carbonroving on a piece of mylar taped on a sheet of plywood. I wet this roving with a mix of epoxy and a lot of spiritus. If you make the roving extreem wet, put a sheet of plastic on it, you can carefully spread the tow by rolling a hardroller "crosswise". You need to repeat this a few times. The roving can be spread to a with of at least 35mm. The gain is to make very flat carbon stripes from 10-15mm width from the rovings which I have in a hughe ammount. These stripes should be used for torsional stiffnes in wathever for wings I will build)
