Spars

The spars just showed up. This is a 1/2" diameter carbon tube from Goodwinds.com. Stiff and light. Testing with 8 kg. Equvilant to about 12 G's with full ballast. Currently thinking that 16 oz. of ballast will be plenty for the windy days. A proper test would have the spar supported at the MAC, not the tips...but I'm looking for trouble.
