Metal kills people, no matter how light you can make it. No matter how fast it will go. Metal is out.
Plus the cost for titanium is horrendous. keep up the good work.

It started as a flat sheet, shaping is really hard on the titanium.

Made the rear titanium wing today, but the wind has died. Need to wait for wind to test
