Ok last winter it was a body this winter it's carbon fiber wings. About 50% of the material delivered today so I suppose it's time to start sharing the next install. As always cad designed and ready to go.

Will the wings have a foam core or is that just a buck for the shape?

Just make sure you put drain holes in them....Currently, my left canard is leaking oil.....a lot of it actually.

Well, they make scuba tanks out of CF so I guess they can seal them pretty tight if they want to.

Ive got the blocks cut and squared hoping for machinings to show up here quickly in the mean time I've got the material laid up and cured. I plan on trimming out the spill plates tomorrow. On another note I guess I need to start working on making cage shrouds as well.
