Default 2.6oz CarbonFiber/Kevlar source??

I'm starting a new project! A F3B Shongololo glider. The wing is hollow and calls for 71gram/2.6oz Carbonfiber/kevlar hybrid cloth. Does anyone know who sells it. All the strandard suppliers don't have it. ACP composites, CST sales, Fibregrast etc. Everyone who carries it starts at 5oz. Any ideas would be great.

Mark,
You are correct about the 2 oz CF but I need 2.4 oz Carbon Fiber/Kevlar hybrid! Can't find it but I do know it's made due to a Blog I'm following in South Africa.
Any suppliers I'm missing??

I have used both http://stores.ebay.com/Elite-Motoring and , http://cjcompositestechnology.com/ Carbon Fiber and Hybrid Cloths. Their prices are very good, and they are USA companies. They ship fast and will do small orders. Good luck with your project, John Taylor


Links above fixed today...sorry about that.

sunnybreeze,

Not in the US of A, but R&G Composites in Germany have a plain weave carbon/Kevlar cloth at 68 g/m2. (Equal to 2.8 oz/yd2)
They also have a Aramid-/Carbon mesh 40 g/m2 bias cut which may be interesting for your application.
(They do international mail order)

Regards,
Magne
