I have started a nylon bolt mod. It remains unfitted at this stage . The mod is easy, ply braces glued to the CF rods with blind nuts. Large nylon washes and ply plate imbedded in the top wing surface. It's easy but not any lighter. I cut the parts because I wanted to reduce unnecessary drag. I also have made a brace for E-flite retracts similar to F-16 mounting so the track is wider than the fuse when the gear is down. Again it si not fitted yet as I have had not time at home to work on it and having decent FPV is a higher priority than my streamlining mods. J
I did a nylon screw wing mount on my Skywalker...has worked great. Post here:
