Here are some more pictures. I now just need to get a canopy and hook up the controls. It is a second generation scratch built. I plan on making a 60" version that could make it to kit form.
Wingspan is 48".
AUW is 32 oz.
Painted solartex with a little vinyl.
I will get flight pictures as soon as I can get it up.
I was going to use a clear canopy with a pilot but could not find one locally so I made a foam one.
The dihedral was easy. The spar is a carbon tube. I used a bent piece of piano wire to join them at the break. A piece of brass tube on the outside keeps the carbon from splitting. I have tried a bent brass joiner on the outside but it broke. I would like to get a tube like is used on the JW but am still looking for one with will work well.
