These booms weigh in between 15-17 grams for a 31 inch length and unbelievably stiff for the weights

Hello, I got your name and web link from Curtis Suter. I just read your posting and pics of the dlg that you must be selling....not sure from the post. Orginally I was looking for someone to cut some cores for a dlg, at least two sets, I have purchased two kits of the Topsky and would like to bag some wings of my own for same plane...maybe you can help. I don't think the airfoil is all that critical but maybe you don't agree...also these parts that you are making for your you have a selling price at this time. I purchased the video from curtis and realized cutting these cores is to much for me...please let know. cliff bryan
