That Prufling is a work of art- very nice. I just joined rcscalebuilder myself, hopefully it will be a good resource as my skills progress. Speaking of skills, you have 'em in spades, sir!

The music wire connectors you mention are like the ones you made from coat hanger wire in your Prufling build, correct? I like. And I am definitely planning on using the "drilled dowel method" where I can... my biggest concern is how to create hard points for the flying wires in the fuselage itself. Don't think dowels will work there. Probably just end up using a piece of ply with blind nuts, and have the wires stay with the wing when it's removed.

I've got a week to read up and think about it- work is taking me out of the world all next week unfortunately.

Been reading this thread.
I am also interested about building from the Jack swift plans.
Problem is that I cant find any info online as to how this design flies.
Any leads as to who has built and flown this Jack Swift design?
