Composite Q500 wing Material?
Iam about to make a Q500 wing, vacumed baged in a female mold. What size fiber glass do you use on the outer and inter layer between the balsa? And what size balsa would you use.

Thanks Randy

RE: Composite Q500 wing Material?

I just talked to Terrance (Neme-Q designer/manufacturer) about this in Phoenix over the weekend. He said that he use to use 1.4 oz cloth on the outside, 1/16" balsa in the middle, and 1.4 oz cloth on the inside. He has since reduced the thickness of the inside cloth to 3/4 oz and hasn't had a problem.

Did Dana finish your molds?
