So you are proposing a slight INCREASE in Size to offset the extra weight of the
thicker foam ?

I suppose I could fit a scale up on the same size sheet of MPF ( Sticking to 1 Sheet ).
But, it wouldn't be much more than ~10% bigger ...
And I already have submitted larger 33" Jupiter version WAY up above .

We are going from what 3mm to 5mm?

Scaled up gets you to about 36.7", so 33" is certainly close enough.....

Bob, I would love a 33". I've built two of your 3mm kits of the Jupiter (and gave them away to flying buddies). I honestly don't think the weight increase from 3mm to 6mm on the original would be horrible. It is pretty much a floater in 3mm.

Scott in NH;
when my supply of 3mm depron drys up I will either have to
1. DROP the original 3m 22: span
OR
2. do the MPF version that I asked about earlier, and see how it go's.

Bothering with something between 22" span and 33" span seems a little silly IMO.


I hear you , buzzltyr !

The 33" Jupiter is now available,
here ...
