Subject: RE: [BugHLG] Re: Bug wing weight
My bug wing is the small one at 29 inches. It has a weight of 1.4 oz. and fuse has a weight of 2.8 oz. for a total of 4.2 oz. My wing has been repaired and strengthened once. It also has one tip made of light ply (with lightning holes) as I wanted to Discus launch this glider but I think that was not needed after trying it. -----Original Message----- From: gldrgidr [mailto:gldrgidr@...] Sent: Thursday, October 09, 2003 11:35 AM To: BugHLG@yahoogroups.com Subject: [BugHLG] Re: Bug wing weight Can I ask again for some of you who have built the extended wing (~34") wingspan bug to weigh the wing. It might be helpful to us all to have a benchmark weight for the wing at least. On Tuesday I got a 4:55 minute flight with the heavy receiver (4.1 ounce flying weight). Wednesday I got a 4:47 minute flight with a GWS receiver (3.8 ounces flying weight) although wednesday's flight was much higher. It amazes me how well this glider flies.
