Wave spar? is that that fancy looking thing ive seen in a members profile picture? It looked like a hollow wing with well... a wave spar I guess

Anyway, interesting idea. I would have thought you would have to mould the wave spar and fully cure it off (or atleast partial cure) before you put it in place. But since you're doing a foam core wing your idea would probably work.

I guess this might be another idea?

What about getting the blocks of foam for the cores, cutting the desired wave profile into each half. Then laying the carbon into the wave and sticking the other foam block half ontop. So you end up with a sandwhich of foam, carbon wave spar, foam. Then you just cut your core from the foam block you've just made with the wave spar already cured inside it?
Could work?
