Are you making your tail with a foam core?
Will you be in Julian?

Hi Vic,
good to hear from you! Unfortunately I will be holding the team USA FAI F3D selection event and will not b able to attend this year. I apologized to Mike for the conflicting event, as I really wanted to come up for it again this year. I will be there next year!

I do use a foam core tail section as a standard, but I can have a balsa blank tail cut if someone prefers it. The wooden tails come out around 2.5~2.7oz. for me, and the foam core ones at 2~2.2oz. I also think the foam tails are stiffer overall, and there is no shaping of the airfoil to mess with when using the foam cores. All of mine for 426 & 424 are foam, and I have not had a failure yet. Just don't bag them @ 25 inches!!

Great looking kit! I think you need to send one up here for me to evaluate.
The 25# thing isn't funny at all. Just last week the stupid switch stuck and tater chipped another Viper wing. I made a new one Saturday afternoon and will be ready for the 29th.
Hate to miss you bro.
