Hi! I am thinking about covering the front part of the fuselage in fiberglass.

Is this a good idea, or just adding weight unnecessarily?

How do you wrap around the nose? (Cut the fiberglass cloth into how many pieces, etc.) Or just cover the bottom part, and don't worry about the top of the nose?

Thank you,
Haoyang

Don't fix it if it ain't broken. Model flies well. Does not need reinforcement.  Many built and flown without mods.

Good luck

Well, I am not worrying about flying, but landing...

In any case, I think you are right. The front feel quite solid already without covering. Just Oracover, then. (All the compound curves...  :P)

Thank you for the suggestions.

It flies great, all 1140 grams of it. :-[

Before the flight I was worrying about the weight, but it was able to float in the same light lifts alongside Ahis, while penetrating better when it started to blow. Tail authority is amazing even around stalls.

Hello 👋

Welcome to the forum! :) looking forward to see your build.
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!
