What are the odds of that when one of the photos has wingnuts with an excess 2cm of bolt holding it together.
I'd consider something like just to get the carbon mast and fuselage. I can make my own wings to fit the screw pattern. However, it either has to be cheap enough to take a chance OR need some positive reviews about strength/quality. Mast takes all the forces here, is the weakest link. It snaps and you lose those fancy wings!norcom wrote: ↑Thu Aug 03, 2017 3:07 pmThe bicycle industry was in a similar situation a few years ago. Carbon frames and rims were extremely expensive from name brand manufacturers (most still are). But then some less expensive frames and rims from China popped up on the market. Few years later and they're now very competitive and in some cases just as good. Most of this stuff's already made there. Too bad most wings/fuselages/masts aren't cross compatible. We could see $50 carbon wings in all shapes and sizes popping up.

I thought that in the worst case I can combine the parts with the LF rocket that I own. Therefore, it can be considered as lazy man DIY project. To put it further into DIY perspective: somebody sells wood HF parts on ebay for half of that, and buyer is supposed to do the most laborous part, glassing, sanding, polishing.
