Very nice, is that a bagged tail? That wing is thin, should go fast.

Assuming you have no spar, the weight seems quite light for DS regardless. I think if you can get to around 18oz / sf wingloading it will DS fine in 15mph wind. Now paint that sucka!

That build thread is one of the pillars of fast/ heavy/ cheap building IMO andI learnt so much from it. Happy reading!
