My friend brought over 35 sheets of readi-board

I decided to spend one night making a super simple and light 30" wing.
I used my existing template, depapered both sides and covered them with tape.

I didn't use carbon rods or pink foam this time (mainly because I was too lazy to cut it and then clean up after)

This wing is rather thick and since upper half is larger, I was able to glue in such way that it created undercambered airfoil.
125g for both wings glued together.
I glued in 2 craft sticks along root cord - one to reinforce the area where I'll mount the motor and one to reinforce nose and battery cavity.

Looks like it will weight around 480g with 2200 battery, small 1400kv motor. Will try 7x6 prop

More pix later.
