Ok, so the G10 wing (medium) arrived today from Gong, 3 days from France to the UK with a bucket full of emails to keep me informed of where and why.
First impression was good, slightly bigger(570mm) than the Moses (at 548mm)but slightly narrower, so should have the same lift but more stability, (I made that bit up)
Build quality is simply superb.
So off to my workshop(garage) to see if I can get it to fit my standard 2017 Moses Fuselage.
Good news is the wing mods are simply 1 extra hole,and I needed to elongate the 2nd hole by 3mm to fit,
however the Moses fuse had to be modified
so it's a good job I have 2, it took me all of 20 minutes to sort the profile with an angle grinder, then drill the extra hole and elongate the other, this was accomplished with my new Dremel, so now it's good to go, looks great and will be tested tomorrow.
The weight is 674g as against the Moses 548 wing at 340g.
So, has it been worth the effort and cost?
Well if it sails as good as the Moses then it has to be a yes from me, the G10 material was so tough to work, I used a tungsten drill to get a hole drilled and the dremel stone attachment to countersink the hole, I burnt out a dremel tool to elongate one of the holes
that G10 is one hell of a tough material, and will burn out most tools.
Even my Wife Pauline who was watching me work on the wing said if I dropped that on the car park it would take a chunk out out of the car park, not the wing.
Something I am well aware using the stuff over many long years.
