Ultima Strong F5J

Added a new bird to the quiver for the 2018 season, an Ultima Strong with an extra set of standard wingtips. Nice having carbon pushrods instead of the cable system.

Some weights, strong layup
Fuse: 148 g
Center panel: 432 g
Right tip - strong: 178 g
Right tip - standard: 152 g
Left tip - strong: 182 g
Left tip - standard: 154 g
Stab: 36 g
Rudder: 30 g

Assembled frame weight w/ strong tips: 1028 g (36.3 oz)
Assembled frame weight w/ standards tips: 976 g (34.4 oz)

My initial thought is to fly with the lighter standard wingtips, and when the wind picks up use the strong tips, along with ballast.

Thanks Ali @FlightComp!
