    i wanted to build one of these for a long time and finally got around to it,but this is no ordinary WING , its made from garbage wings from Crashed planes that were no longer able to be glued back together.
    so here is what i did.

    took the wing set from my garbage Cularis and cut them down. glud them together , added a couple spars for added strength, then used one of the many online CG calculators for wings to find the best " center of gravity" according to design.

    just glued the wing-set together and after knowing the CG went to add the battery pack cutouts... while maintaining the CG !
