There's a hell of a lot of wires there - it must have taken a while to get the rigging right.

400 meters wire is used in this aircraft
That is amazing! Just the flat plate drag (assuming circular 1/8 inch wire ) would be over 13ft^2 (1.3 m^2). Now some of this wire is inside the wing and some runs at various angles and along the fuselage. Still I estimate just wires contribute 9ft^2 (0.9 m^2) of flat plat drag.

At 60 mph the wires will will absorb about 13HP all by themselves. Double the speed to 120mph and just the wires absorb 104 HP. No wonder you need all the wing area to keep the speed down.
