Well, there is the PickUp, but it is a lot smaller and more expensive:

Hi guys . Thanks Alex ...

My wing is 48" , made of simple white eps foam and the joining system costists of pieces of 4 mm Carbon Tubes inside 6 mm carbon tubes . Bigger tubes are glued with epoxy resin inside the foam , before covering ...

There is also another one German made , which is called CrimpUp , here is the link ... :

Oh ... Wallaguest , I didn't know the Pirol . All these are just a bit Non-aerodynamic for my taste , you know ...

I guess the wingtips could be also made to be taken off for transportation , if we glue a plywood airfoiled piece at the WingTip on the foam . Then , you could use a couple of small , even plastic screws to attach the Stabilizers . I make those out of 6 mm Depron and covered with tape or other plastic films . Very Neat .

For info about pricing and the like please PM me ...
