Now that is a most unusual wing structure, hardly any spar structure at all! It must be incredibly stiff in torsion as well.

You must take an in-flight video with it!

This wing weighs only 3 oz, and the total model less of 15 oz with camera and battery 1250mA 3S.

It goes up in the vertical line and same with engine functioning it can take good photos.

It is very easy to fly virtually and without surprises.

Modern design with a hint of vintage charm.

But style is not the main subject, the model is a good AP platform, it glides nicely and has no vibrations for the camera stuff.

The only problem is the transparent orange color that tint all photos, but this problem can be solved!!

It's just a matter of change the Monokote!!

Nice work. I like to see that there are more builders still around. That transparent covering issue is also interesting. I haven't run into that but it's nice for future reference. The transparent is nice when there is beautiful building to show. Are you just going to put an opaque on there instead?

Under the wing, I change the covering for black opaque, this did not tint the photos, and the model get's more visible on flight.
