The wing is similar in construction to the T-45 / Hawk : basic balsa built-up D-tube design with balsa ribs and balsa spar. Occasionally there's some light plywood here and there.

That implies that the wing might need to be reinforced (or at least thoroughly checked) in the landing gear mount region.

The overall wing design would suggest lightweight setups less or equal to 8S in edf, and very marginal (and possibly dangerous) for a small turbine.

The linkage hardware is, as for the T-45, more like park-flier grade, but that can be fixed / improved.
