Larry,

Some thinking out loud for discussion:

What if the two center panels were made from 1/2 blue foam to stiffen the wing up? Fin, elevons, outer wings still made from 1/4 depron or bluecor. I'm thinking it may be easy to make this way and there may be little if any weight penalty if you eliminate some of the other bits now used to add stiffness?

Do the sponsons need to stick out as far as they do? When I watch the video, the front half never comes close to the water.
