I decided to build 3 40oz EPP wings.
All versions of The Windrider Bee 48" . The Bee, Bee II, and the BeEvolution.
I want these planes to fly fast but not too fast and I want them built tough.
I would like to be able to have three pilots fly them at the same time in what we like to call a "DS furball".
This is not combat, more like formation flying with a little bit of rubbing and bumping.
The Bee and Bee II should fly identical but the build will differ slightly.
I'm starting with the BeEvolution.

BeEvolution - a molded EPP combat wing from Ming at Windrider.

Here are the modifications:
5 cell batt pack
4 - .080" Fiberglass rod spars.
.25 Solid FG rod in stock location
.22" Carbon subTE spar
Standard Hitec HS-325 servos moved outboard and just in front of the stock spar location
3 layers of strapping tape
Monokote
Oversized winglets
Upgraded balsa elevons
4-40 linkages
