    my project progressing

    Is there glass on the inside of the fuselage? If not, the foam isn't a core, it's a form. What is the design?

    Thanks PPP but I'd rather have the most current plans.

    Can you post a photo or two of what you have?

    Complete ULF-1 Plans

    I'm looking (still) for a complete set of ULF-1 plans. If anyone has a set that they've decided they're not going to use, let me know.

    Thickness of 6061-T6 Wing Ribs

    Source for Carbon Rods?

    How are you getting the wing attach fitting loads into the spar caps? What about the uprights that the wing attaches to? Will that handle the higher gross? In a gust? What about the fuselage structure under your butt, which is literally hanging from the uprights to which the wing is...

    No need. The plane is designed to +6, -3 as is.

    Wanted Sky Pup Plans

    Hmmm. Build a successful design by a real engineer, or, "fix" the mostly imaginary "issues" using an analysis from some guy on facebook? Maybe ask Roger Ford, Dan Grunloh or Mat Hivonich about the Skypup's supposed "inability" to handle crosswinds. Combined, there is about 60 years of flying...
