Versa wing 150%

Hey guys thought after about 2 weeks of working on my build i would put it up here since i haven't seen anything this large of the FT versa. I used the tiled PDF and blew them up to 150% and started building and here is what i have done so far. I just ordered the push rods, clevis, control horns and power system today.

NTM 3542 1000kv 700 watt
Hobbyking 70amp ESC
Turnigy Digital High Torque Ballraced Servo 26g

That's what i have so far, now trying to figure out 3 or 4 cell and how much MAH to carry. All up weight is still TBD but guessing around 5 or 6 lbs. Built for long range FPV.

I just have a bunch of questions.

Is that monokote? Did you remove the paper from the inside/outside? How is the torsional rigidity compared to a regular Versa? Did you add more internal structures? Are those foam elevons or ply? Are you planning to catapult launch?

Thanks

Did you remove the paper from the inside/outside? No i did not

How is the torsional rigidity compared to a regular Versa? I never built the smaller one so not sure i can compare, i can hold one tip and it doesn't flex at all.

Did you add more internal structures? Yes i have 4 spars installed into the wing going through the center.

Are those foam elevons or ply? Foam but i think i will make ply as they flex alot and its a heavy plane.

Are you planning to catapult launch? I have a few idea's on launching, wing tip throw, overhead and catapult. Already thinking of how i will build a catapult but hoping this wing will just glide after a throw with how much motor i have makes 2500g of thrust with 12x7 prop..
