Default Stiffening Depron without rods ...

Depron for me is available in two thicknesses only ... 3mm and 6mm ....

My thoughts are that 3mm laminated with epoxy with another 3mm should produce a 6mm wing or structure that has far more stiffness / strength than a 6mm sheet version.

It may even be enough to not need insert rods etc.

My Concorde and other models have used this idea but I still added BBQ skewers etc. as I was using non-resin glue. Flex was still there without rods.
Change to laminating epoxy could the answer ............

Anyone use this idea already ?
