Is the wing hollow molded or solid core?

The wing, stabilizer and fin are foam core. They are covered in CarboLine 39 Spread Carbon.

Wow! Looks great- Looks like a B3 nose cone / fuse setup. Wings look beautiful.

Druuuling, must resist, temptation. This should be a great thread. Who will be the first to comment on the stab under the boom design?

Polaris also have stab under bom.
Some say it's better aerodynamical to have over bom, but when having under bom, you do not relay on the spring In throwing phase, when there is slot of pressure on the elevator.But yes, hopefully it can be a interesting discussion. Also the strongest and weaknesses of the plane hopefully gets enlightened. Maybe j.w. himself will say what he has improved over the stobel, and what has been accepted as not so good in process to achieve that goal.

First, to answer an earlier question better - yes, it's a solid core wing.

The fuselage uses a B3 nose cone, but the new rear molding fairs in the control horns and rods. Control of fin and stabilizer uses pull strings and return springs.

Very cool, nice to see more HA models becoming available, especially from major manufacturers.
