  1. My Rock Tower Mod.

    IP
    So last winter to pass the time I did the Pro SS fuselage mod so I could bolt on adjustable rear wings. This winter I decided to stiffen up the rock tower, lighten it a bit and then add a G-10 for that cushy feel. Looking forward to trying it out!

    I'll dig out the scale today and see.

    It actually feels more ridged than when I started, original had quite a bit of flex to it. I guess we'll see on my first off camber crash ... Roughly 5 minutes into my first ride.

    I might have been a little generous, but I was including strap-in time.
