Sweet

Nice job buddy.It should be a great wing,that was a Dlite wasn't it?
The only suggestion I have is to ditch the berg.
What is the AUW rtf?

Yeah, it's the DLite you cut for me. Cut foam came to me just perfect! Thanks!
I loved the pre drilled spar slot!
I know ya don't like Bergs , but I run 'em in all my wings but one and have absolutely no probs what so ever. I also run 'em in my 2 and 4 strokers with the same great results. So untill I make the 2.4 switch I'm gonna stick with 'em.
RTF weight is 33.4 oz.

Boy it is a lite one Dude She will be way sensative.Your low rate will need to be appx 27%.Your thrust angle will be very key to get it to fly true.Mando Can you get me a side view pick of your thrust angle so i can assist in the dial in.
Once dialed it will rock.Built that lite it will float forever with awesome control while even in stall.
I will let the berg thing go ,I hope you dont have a berg of a time with it

It actually suprised me at 33oz, with as much glue, glass and goop that I used. But I did try to keep it light. But it came out as rigid and stiff as a honey moon......well you get the idea.
I'm confident as always with the receiver though, I have great luck with 'em. I could use a second look see at the thrust angle, thanks.
I've got the throws set at 3/8" on the elevator.

Thanks Adam, I try sometimes. Kinda gives me something to do during the winter. But now that it's done I still have the winter time and need something else to add.
Got any suggestions Chris?

Thanks for the look see Chris, I didn't know if the pics would give you what you needed. I agree, maybe a smidge more up, but I'll give it a toss first. Got some snow last night but looking at mondays forcast of lower 60* Gotta love southern Ill.

A fs 48 is great, and will work on the same drive train as you new 40 D lite.Ask adam about his fs 48".
It is out of the norm and flys on rails ,and wont stall even if you try.

adams does track better than mine... Darn those verts.... Now that i know what im looking for i will try to dial it out..

I do like the long nose on mine it has a diffrent look for sure... Besides i needed some place to stuff the 2 2s 3700's

The fs is very unique and looks way cool when flying...
