Let's show your wings. I always love to see other peoples design and stuff. Gives me good ideas for my next one.
Here are some of mine:

Here is my wing fleet.
Changes since the picture was taken is the SuperFlea-Twin is now powered by 2 EDF-50's instead of props. A bit of a lead sled but flies fine. The other change was done to my SuperFly-E pusher. Replaced the original GWS power plant with a HiMaxx 2025-5300 with 4.4:1 gear box, 9x7 prop.
Flew with David Halko today. He was flying the puller version and I was flying my E-Pusher. Both of us have the same HiMaxx motor/gear box. Very evenly matched. Now picture two planes flying very slow side by side and then going to full power straight up! They are a BLAST!

its not done yet, still need controls surfaces and rc gear and a pod like fuse thing for the battery and rx. i currently have the fins on and they look like ScYcS's wing with the fins taped on. its a sloper so no motor and its covered with alluminum foil tape very shiny . Also it is a plank type wing.
P.S. - the flat side is the Eading Edge. Just something different.

Here is my total wing collection.......2
Top is my "bat" by windrider weighing in at 1.1kg (38 oz) and an absolute ball from 15 knots through to the highest i've flown it at 40 knots. Moulded epp covered in Koverall with 77 and then profilm (oracover) over that. No crappy strapping tape at all and very smooth/stiff as a slope wing should be. A friend has one that weighs 1.6kg (56oz!) and has been radared at just shy of 100mph in a frontside dive. They can be built light for fun, but love being heavy and fast. I made my own style single fin from balsa (the std ones look poxy) which slips into a slot I cut and lined with balsa. A touch of goop has it held firm.
The bottom one is my trusty Ezipper-2 with 16-15-4 on 8 kan 1050. If I remember it weighs about 650 grams.
Sunken HS-81mg servos and apart from killing one after a full noise nose in (don't ask, that sun is VERY bright, unlike some ) they have been fine.
It's also built using the same koverall over epp and then profilm over that. NO strapping tape at all. This wing has zero flex and is very tight in the turns, but I reckon the bat would give it a run for it's money for pure speed. I have sloped it in 20 knots and you should see a full powered downwind dive Cheating I know, but still heck of a lot of fun. and a kan pack lasts about an hour! It's the ocean below I'm most worried about though when sloping it.
I gooped the tips on and they aint moving! After looking at the photo, I should really make a new battery lid
P.S guess what colours of profilm I have in stock They are both black on the bottom.

Do you expect to have interference with that covering?
Also how strong is the foil in your part of the world? we can only get really crappy stuff that wouldn't last a minute. It will definately shine in the sun though!

gouch - no there is gonna be no interfearence al long as the antenna is trailing behind it and i use crystals in the reciever. on the strength it isn't that strong but if i get a dent all u do is rub it out and its back to naormal. its like weak but comes right back.
