A new F5J

I think all the work has been worth it. This one is for a buddy of mine. She's 3.7m

Thank You. It's really just a very simple foam core with glass skins. Boom is carbon and pod is Innegra. Rectangle wing joiners with locating pins. The V-tails are a modified pull/pull system I designed.
Root chord is 205mm and span is right at 3.68m. the air foils are based on the Syner J.

I have another very ugly carbon wing I hope to fly this weekend. I say ugly because I used it to try different approaches to painting it.

I did not weigh it but they use all the same components as the 3m models we have been flying. The glass 3m is 850 and the carbon 3m is 750.
