    I should have mentioned, I already have the 0.083" spars. Is KF4 better than newer versions? 5? 7?
    I don't really need best of both worlds, I have a set of stol wings that will get rebuilt in the future. but i don't want it to fly like a lead balloon either....
     
    yours is more impressive, i only had the spars up top.

    Speed wing mods?
    Going to start scratch building speed wings soon, for my fat airframe.

    Current thoughts are avid speed wing airfoil, 12 inch rib spacing,.083 spars @ 12 foot, 7/8 inch lift struts. Essentially longer aerobat wings.

    For current speed wing/aerobat pilots, are there any modifications you would have liked?

    Different airfoils, kitfox? just aircraft? Longer / shorter spars? Slats? Speed brakes? Anything come to mind? I'm scratch building so anything goes!

    Model C + modifications
    Howdy fellas,
    I'm taking my model C down to the frame for a stretch in all directions. If the model C was used for airdale upgrades would anyone have the list or plans of the changes that were made?

    Nate
