foam core / carbon strip 1 inch / medium fibreglass / hard balsa skin 1mm / monokote

mine was crude vacuum bagged with Elmers Pro Bond

it can take maybe 80 - 100 mph ? I have put a het 3w which is a mega 3 turn into it. did some nice turns but mostly 300 watts plus

have read joe's thread, nice job he did and his wing should be strong enough to carry the Gs it produces.

but my wing has a span over 1.4m and aspec ratio about 10, emm~ means mine will produce much more bending moment at the wing root...

had a mind of making my wing with foam core, but failed to begin sonce i didn't really think it will be still strong enough at my size.
