well, so far the majority of the foam airframe is done and weighs in at 2.7 grams thats for a 19.75 in span!!

i added 2 0.5mm carbon rods on the wings l.e. and t.e. and a square of paper at the root joint. now i am thinking i could almost get away with a 4mm geardrive rather than the direct drive 6mm. i will play with the frame and see if i can get it to balance with that on there. should be a super floater though with such a high aspect ratio. wing chord at the root is 1.75 in so thats 11.2:1 ratio

pics to come later!
