WOW Fritz Great Job,I started working on how I'd build a le Pelican XL. I'm trying to keep it "hacksaw and tin snips" so I wouldn't have to flatten and bend the end of the tubes. ...it's got a long way to go and there are lots of glitches (rivet holes in wrong place and gussets passing through the motor mount etc.) but I'm liking the idea more and more

I like the XL size as I need that. Please make it fit a 6'4" 220lb pilot with a bit of room for fuel. I was thinking of going down the same route but since your already doing it than maybe I will wait. If you have not joined the Yahoo group yet there are some good pics of the wings structure. Oh one other request make it strut braced and allow the wings to fold like a Kolb. Folding wings are a necessity for me which is why I was going to start drawing one myself. Also keep the 37' or 38' span as I also want to float around in some lift. If you need or would like any help or a second set of eyes let me know as i am a solidworks user as well.
