This time, I tried to make it as light as possible. It is easier to make light and flimsy structure strong, than making sturdy but heavy structure light.
Roofed Wing was too heavy with steel angle frame and thick Lexian panels. I couldn't even lift the main stand anymore.
Roofed XS uses thinner Lexian with thin aluminium sheet bent in lengthwise to increase rigidity. Carbonfiber rod frame is also very light.
Also I used more rivets and #8 screws rather than M6 bolts. I weighed all the nuts and bolts used in Roofed Wing and it was more than 2 lbs. LOL
