Looks so fragile…..

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.

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?John JonesKeymasterSeptember 2, 2017 at 8:20 amPost count: 2704

Almost ready for another update photo. Got the flu yesterday, so I’ve been puking and squirting all night; and today. 😯
