Wing reinforcing

I use Zip Ties to reinforce my wings they do two jobs. Strengthen the wing a good as a carbon rod for less cost and weight, and reinforces the leading edge from accidental impact.

maiden

Made the maiden she flight was great. The only problem is the SPMSA2030L Servos don't have enough movement for the ailerons. So she will not roll. I need to go to Hobby King HK-5320 Servos.
Weight is 92gms.
19in WS.
