He made a BL version, so 6.6m span, (ignore the 6.7 in the video). He did make a very strong wing based on his previous F3B model making experience, it still flexes. I note the bendy/stiff discussion earlier.

Referring this gliding supplier catalog, https://www.glidingshop.eu/upload/Wheel ... 0Table.pdf
all the ASWs use the standard 5.00-5 main tyre, so for 25%, main wheels 3.5", and a 2" tailwheel are very close.

Great info,many thanks!

Gentlemen, today I did something I haven't done for a very long time, charged my gear in preparation for flight. Woohoo!

Well hello folks, hope you are all doing good?
I finally had time to begin the final skinning and assembly on the 22.the tips are done,(epoxy bonded balsa and vacuum bagged).I now have to assemble the 40 or so 1/16 x 100mm sheets for the inner panels ,not to mention the colossal vac bag I will need!
I am hoping to be flight ready for the next tow event.(I have toyed with the idea of a electric set up too ,but I think it spoils the beautiful lines so not sure).What are your thought? gents.
Be safe .

Depends how much you want to fly it…….with a FES drive in the nose and tall enough landing gear you can fly when ever you want……if built as a pure sailplane then you can only fly when there’s a tug available.
