This is what I have so far.. basically 9 inch prop setup.

Gondola is 267mm height and 232mm in length and 80mm in width. Odd measurements but putting a plastic ring as the prop guard:

@flyandi - I just finished printing this gondola:

The HobbyKing 2.2m parafoil just arrived too. Haven't looked at it in any detail yet. Not quite sure how to rig this thing up, will post some pictures as I get the whole thing assembled.

Will be interesting to compare notes.

I wonder if I should pull the holders of the prop guard in a bit - since they right now extending over the propeller a little bit ... like this? Any thoughts?

So are the lines still as bad as shown above or is it improved?

I suppose you could entirely restring it.

Alrighty .. final format. All prepared and ready to go. Will cut tomorrow :-)

I did not know how long the arm's should be, so I did two variations.

Some pictures of my progress. Need to fit the arms to the servos, add RX and ESC, and program radio. Then start rigging. Weather permitting, maybe a flight this weekend.
