    You do all the fancy calcs and then you sh*t on it with laminating film. You're a funny guy.

    My Techwing kicks ass.

    I fly the second prototype Techwing that was manufactured and designed by Wayne Garris. have had it for a few months now and love the stability and flight times this airframe provides. A recent re-power and new laminate has really let me put the hammer down with just a 2200mah 4cell. The handling at slow speeds is great and I haven't noticed any tip stall characteristics typical of my previous wings. Running dtf uhf, 1.3ghz video, rembizi osd, pz0420, hitec servos and a 250watt motor. Best part is it fits in my trunk fully assembled and ready to fly. Techwing is a great fpv platform. I built mine like a tank to take some serious hits but it still flys like a dream.

    If it ain't broke, break the crap out of it, then fix it.

    I see. You're gonna mold this. Well that's charming! Curious to see some updates as soon as you have them ready!

    reading over my previous comment again and I notice I came across a bit harsh. Sorry abt that.

    C-5, no problem I'll get one printing for you. Its $100 for the kit. I have them available on my store. Sorry it took me a while to see your comment. I was getting notices through tapatalk on my phone but they stopped for some reason.
    here are a couple pictures of the cad work I am doing to get it ready to be molded. this is the fuselage. Thinking about a large wood tray at the bottom to mount things to and tie in the wing spars.

    thick trailing edge:

    The hardest part about molded EPO id the fact you cant have sharp edges. Everything must be over 1/8th inch, so no sharp TE. I had to do a complete re-model to
    fatten up the TE.
