slope soarer to glider conversion.

Hi, all, I have been given a 75inch foam wing (no ailerons )covered in orocover and quite light in weight. Would it be feasible to build a fuz for it say from a plan, and to convert it to an electric assist glider. This wing I am told originally came from a slope soarer. Cheers, any suggestions would be help full, as at the moment I cannot afford to speculate on a full kit. I have had many years of building from plans, so I cannot see this part a problem. Cheers. PS said wing has a small di-hedral, and a slight backwards taper. Thank you.

No reason why not.

Any pictures?

Yours, Greg
