Short description of your design goals - NEW DESCRIPTION: "Chia" was the Mayan word for "strength and the Aztec word for "oily." Chia is also a superfood with an extraordinary biochemical makeup. Well a slope-strong and slick hard shelled sloper made of special materials is what my project is for sure. I am growing a Chia pet this summer: A seven foot span polycarbonate-winged wiffle-ball bat fuse speedster equipped with ailerons, flaps and elevator. The two piece wing will have a thin moldy shape, made using snips, carbon rods, and E6000. It will have an X-tail with bell crank h-stab. I have been drawing pics of this for some time and I got some polycarbonate in stock as well as a wiffle bat. Can barely wait for build-start date!
