New Project "Igazi"

This is a new Project. Got the wings cut by Craig Baker, very thin profile, 50 cm wingspan. as a wing reinforcing method, due to the thin section, I thought of using 6x2 flat carbon strips. Routed out a small opening (pick 3) then insert the carbon strips vertically (pick 1) and glue in place with Gorilla Glue, the glue remains rubbery and expands slightly while setting, though filling all the gaps neatly. Further I intend using a 55 diam ducted fan assembly pushing approx 1000 gr thrust, +-45000 rpm with a 2100 3s LiPo battery.
