built the vertical..same manner as stabs...2 layers of 6mm depron laminated and carved. weighs 1.1oz with embedded carbon spar. i think that brings me up to about 16.5oz. theres still a number of small items to add plus wbpu and paint...i full expect 26 to 28oz by the time its all said and done.

Tuition

2 six-packs, a lipo and a case of depron?
It isn't the tuition, it's the commute [625 miles or so]!
From the looks of your progress you will have it flying for AITH?
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Being so talented in so many areas, must be tough on you!

You mentioned earlier, that twin 60's might be your choice,, have you decided on what fans your going to run??

honestly im having 2nd thoughts about the 50mm fans i got...i ordered some 64mm fans to try and may end up going cn special and cutting them down to 60mm depending on amp draw ect. the thrust numbers arnt as good as i had hoped for the 50mm setups

They claim the curves were for improved airflow but I think your right about the female influence.
