Steve,
I will check the cof g for you, the spars are 12mm x 3 mm Cyparis top and bottom front and rear glued to the existing spars .3 mm lite ply is used as full depth shear webbing with around half a litre of aliphatic glue per panel to hold it all together ?
The wing was simply slotted for the new spars with a razor saw and only took around two hours per panel, I have modified both the original panels and the so called factory modified panels and have had no reported failures,
cheers Euan.

I just looked on the Hobby Club site and do see they sell the 6M version but did show the small one. Do you happen to have a link to where they show them in stock?

Thanks,


Pat

Hi,
You're right, it is no longer there.

Call Alberto directly: (949) 425-1362 . I'm sure he can still get them.

Phoenix also has an online store.
