R&G has 80g STF on bias. But that's probably to heavy? 45g is very light carbon. Can I ask what you need it for?

In the U.S, Vlad spread tow only comes from Kennedy Composites. R&G is the only other source of inexpensive carbon.

R&G IS IN Germany. If you are buying anything more than a few airframes worth of material I highly recommend them.

TODAY 1 EURO is 1.28 USD FYI

FYI, I believe you should be VAT exempt on your order from R&G too.

I sell short lengths of 80GSM textreme on a bias cut for customers who do not want the expense of having to buy a full metre length

shipment to the usa is approx $6-8 (depending on the exchange rate)

a 10cm strip should be enough to fabricate a carbon d-box on a DLG wing

WoW , Thats a great service to us DLG hounds. You can expect me to be ordering some.
Great!
Do you have to splice the material to do a complete wing from one 10cm strip? I noticed its 141 cm in length

For a DLG, I would think you'd only be laying up each half wing anyway and joining with dihedral afterwards, wouldn't you?? So you only need about 75cm length at most for each half.
Or, are you doing one-piece wings in a mold??
