I doubt there is a single proper F5D airframe in NZ

It's super way thin. Servo area is raised to meet the edge of the servo...a little like the RW4. The wing is very stiff/strong.

I will try and get pix comparing the wings. Yes, it's crazy thin.

EDIT: Not very good luck getting good pix. Upon closer inspection, the Excite wing at the root is about 30-35% thinner, and about 40-45% thinner in the middle of each side...still much, much thinner...practically half as thick.
