Still riding my original MHL with new custom wings. Fast, stable and really strong. Session this weekend trying to break it.

windfreak, The front wing is the stock MHL low aspect wing that has been cut down to reduce the area and increase aspect ratio. Flies better than the stock wing with slightly higher takeoff speeed. The rear wing is hardwood core covered in 4 layers of fiberglass. It is super high aspect and just flexible enough to give a soft ride. The rear wing also has 22 degrees of dihedral to add a little stability. The forebody on the rear wing is to move the rear wing back a couple of inches to help with pitch stability. Overall, this is the best riding setup I have.
