You should make a new fuse for the WURM with a solid T-tail, Then it will do 300 before the wing blows up.

Backing to topic,
Another blank out of molds and this one is the lightest.... That's not means weak, still full heavy 6oz Carbon wing with core inside, that would be a good option for light days, AUW will be around 500g.
Won't be mine, it's going to a friend in São Paulo,.... Trying to recruit more guys to ds world =)

I was getting issues with the paint not covering the expected but on this fuse I applied more paint layers and it seems good, final test will be make a wing with finishing second to none... The Big problem is the vacum pressure against the mold, it marks the cloth in the paint, if you look carefully that white wing you will see the marks, since I don't use vacum for the fuse that doesnt happened to it.
The wing use heavy 6g Carbon and that cloth wave can be seen through the paint in the whole wing somehow.
Will try more paint layers and also combine the colours for covering

Hey Andre, do you use a veil cloth as the first layer into the mould (like 3/4 to 2oz glass)? This helps to stop print through a lot.
Cheers

Josh,

Iīm using first layer of 1oz plain wave glass cloth, I really think just putting more paint layers...or... waiting the paint to get full cure before putting the vacum, or maybe both ideas together will avoid print behavour, anyway, I just polished that wing and itīs shinning like gold
