Crap. GP use to sell wing kits. Maybe they still do as the kits still in production. Anyway, hope everything works out.

Unfortunately, the only parts listed for this kit is the cowl. Both the wing set, and canope are shown as discontinued.. Fortunatley, I have a plan on how to repair . I should mention that the most devastating part of the wing break is that the 3 piece laminated brace that sets up the gull wing is the part that broke. Being 3 pieces of ply I would have thought would be the last part to break. Oh well!!

I finished the rebuilt wing some time ago, and have been waiting for some sort of reasonable weather to re-maiden. What with the constant early morning fog, rain and wind, it has v-been a long wait. Finally, last saturday was the day.
The wait turned out to be worth while. After the required ground handling checks, I held my breath and headed down the runway. Take off was very brisk, after a short run and it literley jumped into the air. Handling in the air was somewhat jumpy, but that was probably from my nervous fingers. Made several circuits to check trims and headed in for the first landing. Much to my satisfaction, that turned out just fine. I have a winner.

Awesome. I have all the parts to convert mine (no battery yet) just have a few projects I need to finish till I can get to it. It should be ready to fly late spring early summer.

Anyway, congrats on the flight.
