    Single boom. This is why I said radical change.

    Again, radical change. SkyTrek (which will be finished and will fly) has two issues: quite heavy and bloody expensive to print. SkyTrekII will concentrate on weight savings. The only common thing is the name and the "foldability", everything else is going to be very different.

    The SkyTrek2 is sitting in my workshop almost finished, but I had to put on hold all my projects some months ago until I'll complete a critical one.

    Basically it's bigger, lighter, and more compact than the first version. Not as good looking, but more practical. All the changes were based on using Ian Davidson's Boomprop.

    This is how it looks right now. Just need to cover the tail and do a simple installation in the provisional fuselage for maiden it and then redesign the final fuselage:

    Certainly looks different to the v1 lol.

    I can certainly see that it will be very easy to break down for travel. The wings don't concertina anymore right? They just break into 4 manageable pieces?

    I WANT ONE DAMN IT. Love the boom prop btw, I have a design drawn up that uses it but can't afford the R&D
