Default RE: Do I need to use CA with carbon fiber strip?

Hawkeye,
I built two Midwest Extra 300S kits, and an Ohio RC 10-300 Ultimate, they all used the same flimsy truss/sheeted design I used 4-40 wire braces to stiffen up the tail section, adding the CF will help but it will still flex a lot, the wire bracing makes the horizontal much more solid while stiffing up the Vertical at the same time. If you're going to brace it (which I recommend) the CF is overkill

good luck


p.s.
