OK, so the main difference is the old fuse had a bolt-on wing, and the new fuse has a shoulder mounted wing with a pass-through joiner.

I was wondering if the tails were the same and the layups the same ect.

52 oz is light!

Yep everything is the same. Its like he bolted on the wing and cut it off to make the new root. Its exactly the same span.

52oz is about 69-71oz RTF. Sounds right to me!

Thanks Dave, thought is was about time...
and Target, Dave is right about the Altus differences. It was originally designed as a one piece wing, and Dieter did Daryl and I a big favor by building us one, and making it a two piece.

The new one looks great BTW

Can't wait Craig. You are Roudy should be a blast to hang out with. But, my kiwi friend, you are not allowed anywhere near my gliders with any sort of tool capable of making core samples....:-)

The all time classic Graphite.

Did this model start the 'Modern Revolution' of high performance sailplanes? Or am I just blowing wind up it's tailpipe?
