Did the end product end up as a magnetic attachment to hold the wings together. I thought I remember hearing that discussion. If I recall it was first "seen" at a fly in at last years Oktoberfest, almost a year!

yup. there are bolts for the bottom wings though for a little extra piece of mind... I only managed to separate the magnets of the top wings with rather insane full throttle downline corkscrews, but they've added an extra set of magnets since then.

the official name is "Vyper Bype"... it plays off the "Hyper Bipe" that has been in the airplane lexicon for quite some time...

Anybody know where I can get a pull-pull cable set for a 47" shp, mine came missing the end buckles for one end so I just ran the cables through the quick connectors, worked for a little while, but the set screw just cut the cable while I was trying to tighten the cables up

I ran my cables through the eyes of some spare ball links. Just an idea if you happen to have some laying around.

That is theKM's "HoneyBadger." He installed airbrakes, among a bunch of other mods.
