Bumblebee quad compsand

6'6" long
2 3/8 thick
15 3/4 nose
21 7/8 mid
16.5 tail

Wide-tail bumblebee-style turbo quad.

This is another new phase of construction methods for me, with solid balsa rails and 1/8" balsa skins over ultralight foam. It's called "composite sandwich" construction, or CompSand for short. This made for boards weighing as little as 5.5 lbs, but tougher than normal glass-over-foam construction.
