      I had a chat with Kjell Sture at the Welsh Open and he recommended the following layup: Wing - outer C130HM carbon, thicker herex, inside C60HM Fus - reinforced with C130HM I suspect that it is the same as the F3F HM extra strong listed on the web site as that was the price. I think it will come out about 2.3kg all up, which is quite heavy for a model designed for light winds but I have always gone for the heaviest / strongest layups available (saying that, there is a heavier Arkona editon layup available, I think these come out at over 2.4kg). Others prefer lighter wings in a light wind model, but who knows, I might decide I like it in all conditions and the lighter wings are not so great when you have a 4.5kg model in 22ms winds. You are right about the sections, I think they had to tweak their RDS systems to get them to fit the thinner wing.

      Did you go for the HM F3F strong version? Scheme looks good You cant really compare the roots as they will be very similar as the wings are interchangeable. It blends into the new aerofoils as it goes out
