here is wing and fuselage all I have from an hour and half of work =( wing bent good shape seems to follow my real wingo very closely, I did make a mistake on building the fuselage to scale , I did not take into account the thickness of material on top and bottom so it is 1/2" taller than perfect scale

You can go to a sports authority, or any stores that sells bow&arrow supplies. Cut off the sharp tip, and rear "feather" and you have a very stiff rod.

Ooooh, a 1/2" off. That's really going to cost you some points at the scale showoff.

What motor is it getting?
