It is the Mirage. The wing strength is probably decent in stock form and I know this would be an over kill but I do plan on flying it in open class competition and would like the extra launch/winch ability without worry.

I do plan on wrapping the joiner boxes with kevlar thread. Not sure if I am creating a major stress point at the wing joiner box going from carbon spar back to bass wood in the tip panels?

The cost is about $25 vs. $8 for the tape but not really a big concern if it is easier than laminating carbon tape and sanding down the wood for the correct fit.

I have not seen too many post about just replacing the entire spar cap with a pure carbon cap.

Thank you again for the thoughts
