Foxacoy Powerhouse part 2

Hi Guys,
The wing took a little longer than I planned on. Covered the center section with 1/64 ply.
The wing as is weighs 12 ounces
The first photo shows the dihedral jig I made.
The wing is hanging up waiting to be covered.
I ran the Fox 35 with the APC 10.5 dia by 4.5 pitch prop. It tacked out about 11,500 rpm. Installed the Tongue muffler and the prop tacked out at 12,000 rpm.
But the engine was running a little hot. I backed off the needle valve and it ran cooler at 11,500 rpm.
The stab is the next thing to build.
