I hate to ask because this will open a can of worms but do you like a lite wing or a heavy wing.....
PM sent so we can keep the can of worms to ourselves.

Couldn't be happier Alex,very fast and stable once I got the CG on the first few flights were tail heavy and I stuffed it to the wing only damage was sheared of the wing bolt and buggered up the front of fuse where the wing tang goes in but not too bad few loops of black tape and good to go again .
The new wing Steven says will be about 20%faster. Something about newer airfoils and different blending
I will be machining aluminum production molds for the new wing next week if all goes as planned .the front tang will be smaller not shorter as to allow a thicker front of fuse also making this thing bullet proof .
After burying this thing to the wing it was nice that the tail boom (it's beefy) didn't just snap off like others have in the past with such abuse.
So all in all its a awesome little glider very pleased with it.......
Looking forward to be in production late this year.

So very cool...


On working with an updated wing for the aluminum molds, the transition from the existing root section to the transonic section looks like this. It's a mess.

It would be smarter to rapid proto something unique. That can be arranged.

Cool beans Pete. UTM.
