You guys make my day!!

This prototype wing is using a different core than production planes, to test out the theory that the sandwich material *only* needs Z-axis strength by using a very light foam we've been toying with with a very high Z-axis stiffness, but relatively low strength on the X and Y axes. My friend has tried it on a FG wing and it was very promising, we shall see......

Any benefits of going so light? Maybe, maybe not. But, if it works it does open up a LOT of possibilities in the structure of our wings and tails.
