A funny story about the wing/spar kit. They were listed online as "Standard Velocity" parts by the seller (who was not the owner/builder). I nearly passed them up, but was nagged by the number of foam cores I saw in the pictures. XL wings have more cores than standards do and different sized spars....Anyway, I had the guy send me measurements of the spars and they lined up with the XL dimensions in the manual! Having confirmed this, I flew to Alabama one morning, and drove a Ryder truck home to Minneapolis that evening...stopping only for gas! I was only in Alabama for 2.5 hours. I slept for a day when I got back from that 19 hour drive. It turns out that the wings/spars we for a LongWing not an XL....more on that later!
