Both options looking great. Got me thinking as there are not too many curvy bits so possibly something I could do out of DTFB. I'm liking without the booms personally.

Maybe I could design it as optional booms eh .. so it could be built either way

Yes that would be a good idea Lockey, even 2 verticals placed where the booms hit the T/E would be another version as well!!??
