Worked up some new wing mounts.

1/2 inch honeycomb core and 14 layers of carbon on the struts. VERY STRONG. The only flex in the system is actually in the subframe. Amazing how much deflection is in the chassis with a 35 inch lever attached to it

The wing and struts actually slip out of the aluminum "saddle" very quickly and easily with removal of 4 bolts from inside the boot area. So removal of the rear clam will not be a difficult task for service.

I contoured some mounting plates for the top side of the wing that have adjustment holes. Starting with just two settings to keep things simple and will fine tune ("slow track" and "fast track") as we get more experience with the setup.

Here are some pics...
