    Not gone! Just don’t live out back no mo! 😆

    As for the fragile look, it does. But the strength of the wing is in the two spars that are running the length of each wing panel. Then the triangulation between the attach point from the top of the fuselage and the struts from mid point of strut to the attach point at the bottom of the fuselage. Ribs just hold the shape of the airfoil and creates the lift. There is going to be quite a bit of internal stiffening to each panel to resist twisting forces. Kind of like belly pans on a bus, but sticks that add compression strength and diagonals for twist. I will post pictures of these. Should have a good bit done this weekend.

    DA’s. Good engines. Manufactured about two miles from my house. Know Dave and his crew quite well.

    Yeah I love DA engines, Ive got three currently and have had many in the past. Dave is a great dude. I have dealt with Casey quite a bit too. Not sure how many guys on here fly but maybe it’d be cool to start an R/C thread?

    Fired it up two days ago. Didn’t ride much, just around the block twice. It’s waiting for you!
