Ron Glad to be of assistance. Regarding the wing loading of the BUG as compared to the Quark, the Quark has a loading of 1.507oz/ft^2 if you use this same loading for the BUG you will get an AUW of 48.3g. close enough to 50g I say. Regards Trent Elliott. --- In BugHLG@yahoogroups.com, "shadowarcher1100" <rcheroske@...> wrote: > > > > Actually the Bug may be a little too heavy at 50 gms so we may have to make it lighter. There is a thread somewhere about SAL Quarks which use the Vapor bricks and they're 1.5 oz. And they're thrown hard. Key to protecting the servos is to put a loop in the push rods ala Vapor pushrods. If the wind comes up, get out the heavier DLGs. > > Thanks Trent for the link to the wrapped carbon rods. I put in an order. >
