    Hey Brett,

    Don't worry about being away from your Raven for so long. I haven't touched any of my planes all year. . . . .:(

  3. That is 1/16" G-10 fiberglass sheet. I purchase it from McMaster Carr.

    I guess I meant under and aft of the wing tube. looks kindof like Kevlar and carbon woven together.
     
  5. Ah...that! That is a sandwich of 1/4 inch ply with carbon fiber on either side. Not really necessary in that application but I had it laying around. It is nice in that the carbon fiber layer stops any denting of the ply from the washer/nuts that are tightened on it. That piece is there to support the rear hanger for the canister.

    LOL I need a red marker to point out what I'm looking out ha ha! Its on the inside of the fuse, on either side supporting the area around and mostly aft of the wing tube. definitely two different types of woven fibers. Not a big deal was just curious.

    I think I can translate here. I think he's asking about the fabric in the center of this picture.

  9. Yeah..I figured that out but have been travelling so unable to answer clearly!

    I am unsure exactly what the material is as it was molded into the fuse on delivery. It is definitely carbon fiber, but I am unsure whether the other material is fiberglass or Kevlar. It is only a single layer and it's been layered in there to reinforce the area...the fuselage on this plane is very thin so all stress areas are reinforced in some manner.

  10. Today's work was all about cooling the engine...The cooling air entry holes were already cut but I cut in the cooling slots in the fuse belly today.
