Hi there! Sorry for being late...

the dimensions are as follows - wingspan is 100 cm, wing-chord is 19 cm, the CG is set at around 27% from the leading edge. The profile was hand-drawn on to a piece of cardboard, depron "ribs" were then cut out and glued over the carbon wing spar. There are only a few od them but enough to help keep the profile uniform throughout the span. By the way, the maximum thickness of the wing is around 8% chord.

Perhaps it is worth pointing out that this is my first model to fly. I have built the Pilatus seen in the photos but I had no RC gear at the time of building it. Therefore I hung it off the ceiling, bought myself a cheap beginner`s set (the Wing Dragon), mastered it and then moved the components into the bird you see in the video.

Further comments are welcome.
