the vacuum worked perfectly

Hiho …

After 24hrs in the vacuum bag, the first wing just looks great! It’s really stiff and strong, I just tested it for about 4g loading without any noises or anything. (a crackling noise is a first indication for overstressing the compound material)
the left wing the root rib
The chord of the wing still is larger than the final wing, as the trailing edge is excess material and will be cut to the final shape later.

Tim (smiling)!
