If you like, I can send you a complete set of laser cut Bug Parts. This would include the addition of a Carbon Pod to replace the balsa pod shown on the RCM plans. It also includes a cruciform tail options. This will allow you to build the Bug per the plans or to make a more sturdy version using the additional parts to make what the designer, Colin Bosch calls the Carbon Bug. The cost of the kit is $60 plus actual shipping by US Priority Mail. Delivery charges in the USA are around $6.00. I'd have to check to see what mailing costs would be to NZ. There are some pictures that I can direct you to on the internet so that you can see what the Carbon Bug looks like.

Sinceyo u're in a remote area, I'd go ahead and order enough of the carbon fiber tubes to do a couple wings. Once you fly the bug you'll want morethan one!Al===============================================================================Allan Wright Jr. | Without love life's just a long fight - SouthsideUniversity of New Hampshire +--------------------------------------------------Research Computing Center | Come see 'The Gambler' side-arm launch glider atInternet: aew@... | http://www.wrightbrothersrc.com=============================================================================== Yahoo!
