Current weight minus radio and covering is 1.78oz. Airfoil was AG 37. I used the ones from the Lightning Bug file. The wing is glued and glassed on. I decided against the complexity of a bolt on wing and the plane is might small as is. Horizontal stab is a full flying one. I built a V-mount out of 1/64 ply. It's similar the the one on the Allegro Lite. I had planned on using a covering from Ed Harris. It's similar to Silkspan put stronger and shrinks with heat. You seal it with dope. I'll try to post a couple pix later. Steve On Sep 9, 2012, at 3:21 AM, Squid wrote: > HI Steve, > > Thanks for sharing with us.
