Interesting notes on the wings and looking forward to the results and any how tos. For now for my first bug, I'll build according to the plan as light as I can. My builds are usually way out on the heavy end of the curve, but I'll do my lightest - will take a while to order materials and all. The torsion spring and pull wire will be a first for me.

Took the CAD drawing, stretched the panel to 20" and set up false ribs for the widened bays. I would of had this done says ago but life got in the way. If everything works out right, I'll post the hows and whats about it all. > > Mark > > --- In BugHLG@yahoogroups.com, "mpwlad" <mpwlad@> wrote: > > > > Thanks for the torsion spring tutorial, aft peg placement notes and photos, words on electronics and weight reduction and optimal use of reinforcement instead of ballast extending the fuse slightly, etc by many posters in this group in several message threads! > > >
