Default Terminator HLG

I haven't built or flown one myself but have heard good things about them. I'm going to start working on an Uplink soon, it is a SAL (side-arm launch) HLG.

Do you plan on sheeting the wings with balsa or vacuum bagging them with fiberglass?

I'm working on a RES-MAXX wing right now, last night I pulled the center panel out of a vacuum bag. It was my first time sheeting with balsa instead of CF / FG. It turned out pretty good. I was a little surprised to see the epoxy pulled through the wood sheeting pores in some spots.

(BTW, most of the glider guys hang out on RCSE. Let me know if you want more info.)

good luck with the Spirit / Terminator,
