Thanks Bill. It's a foam/veneer wing. I've used quite a thick airfoil section for more docile, slower flight characteristics and have used these very bright 'dayglo' vinyl decals on the underside, to help with orientation in flight.

Maiden flight yesterday. Only needed one click on the aileron, no other trimming! [8D] Really docile, stable and very easy to fly.
