    Did you use a solid foam core for the wing, instead of the foam ribs? And did you still use plywood skins?

    No, I use styrofoam for wing's core and fiberglass and epoxy resin like covering, the playwood is for fuselage's skin

    Beautiful work, Andre.

    That looks like an iPad. Please tell us about the EFIS app you have chosen.

    André, if am right, PIK26 original wing is one piece. Isn't? What are changes in fuselage centerplane and how are wings joined to fuse? Did You used original GAW airfoil?

    Am thinking about building of bigger modified "PIK26" for whole VW 1700-1800ccm engine, 4.8-5m long, different thicker airfoil, separate flaps/ailerons, detachable wings - span cca 7m. Please, could You share Walter plans for studying?
