You'll notice that the proportions are somewhat elongated to make it more like a 3 channel motor glider than a scale or back & forth model.
The wing was made from the same blue foam core that he uses in his F1C folding wing design with a tapered .005 carbon fiber spar top and bottom. The wing is then finished with a vacuum adhered 1.5 oz glass cloth that has the grain oriented at 45° to the cord and span. It is incredibly rigid. Weighing in at 17oz, it is 8oz to the square foot.

|No landing gear, just 2 wire skids|
|He drew his own plans and figured out the radio installation better than many who've flown R/C for years.|
|This Taube by Fred Mulholland from 4 yrs ago was the inspiration.|
