Okay-we have been discussing definitions,generally ,lately.
Last night ,at our club eat 'n fly,Rich brought out his new 8' Telemaster.Rich is a well rounded builder,for many years..His stable includes rubber power to 100cc giants.
The after-flight discussion included his build.He had bought stock balsa sheet and strip to build with,as most of us do.
He had the wing ribs laser cut,by a fledgling company in the Midwest.

Should we discuss this combination of building in the new forum? Can this be defined as a "scratch" build? How far will we go to limit the exposure of mixed building to newbies wanting to learn?
We accept that very few folks saw their own balsa trees,so we buy 'preformed' materials,which is acceptable.Will we establish laser cutting as 'normal' in a scratch build?

What I'm trying to determine is, do we limit laser cutting to just kits,or accept the freedom of options in scratch building?

I have my answer already-we want to hear yours.
