Default RE: Fliton Quiet Storm build

Hello Tony,

I was flying my Jumping Jack yesterday (its fourth flight) when one of the wing halves snapped at the fuselage root during a loop and resulted in the model being written off[&o][&o]. Inspecting the damage it appears that both balsa spars snapped at the interface with the root rib.

The above problem aside, I was well impressed with the performance of the Jumping Jack and am keen to get a similar but different (stronger) model as a replacement - I am wondering about the quiet storm....?

Basically my question is, how are the wings attached to the fuselage and do they have anything in them for the main spar that is stronger than a couple of 'waffer' thin balsa strips?

Thanks,

Bill
