New KFm6 "Champion" Wing build started....

After doing the first two wing builds faceting my designs, I have skipped "Sprint". Remember that Sprint will be a 42" wing and the build would have been great, but alas, I needed materials and had to order them. My intention is to build Sprint as a precision wing, so please bare with me and I am certain you will not be disappointed. As you have seen, my designs have flown and flown well. If I doubt my designs in any way, I would not post them here to waste your or my time.

Until then here are the beginnings of Champion, my 60" wing. I do hope you enjoy.

Never did hear anything about how Champion flew, or have you had an opportunity to maiden with going back on the road for work?
