Glad you are feeling better, Tom.

Here's a question for you about the ST carbon:
For a full sized TD plane, of the 3 choices (Vlad STF, 64G Tex, 80g Tex), what would you think to be the best for bagged wing models, in both a full carbon layup, and a d-box layup (Kevlar behind the spar)?
Thanks in advance, impressive work!
