Frame pretty much done, maybe some detail work.
Thank you, Ken, Fred, Eric and others on this forum for helping through this part of the build. Truly appreciate it.Galaxy 585 - Bones Done Glaxy_10

Actually it's not complex. It just appears like it is. Building a geodetic wing is superior to conventional rib layouts. Lighter weight structures are prone to warping when built in traditional methods. This essentially X's out the structure in shorter spans eliminating the tendency for the wing to warp. Many modern stunters in control line utilize the same method as it can eliminate the need for additional ribs and it supports the covering better providing a better airfoil. I think of it the same way I frame a hip roof.
