Hi Kane, unfortunately spread-tow fuselages are for team pilots only, sorry!

Robust, too bad you missed the meeting today, Lao Gu's Butterfly wing is quite nice!

Here are some photos of my new plane I'm getting ready to build.
Components:
-Stock Neos Carbon wing (full 80g Textreme wing)
-Stock Neos Competition glass tails
-Team Armsoar Neos fuse

You can see the major component weights below in the photos. The weight of the wings are pre-flaperon cut... perhaps it will lose 1gram of weight to 118grams.

Tails are not cut yet either, I'm expecting it to lose a little bit as well.

We are considering adding some CF along the vertical bottom to increase durability on both versions for future production models.

I'm calculating the AUW to be 260-265 grams, we'll see if I hit the target!
