The Lazy Bee will be built and made ready to fly for a customer in Ohio. The Bee came to me with the wing already built but it was crushed during shipping and will have to be re-worked. I don’t think the wing could have been packaged by the owner any better than it was so I have to assume the shipper used it for a football game or perhaps bench seating, The wing is fairly fragile when built to plan so I may substitute some spruce or basswood for the main spar in lieu of balsa. The spruce will add a good bit of strength with negligible weight gain.
On initial inspection I had planned to salvage the wing tip bows and build the rest from scratch. After looking closer I now plan to re-kit the wing and salvage most of the shaped material. I might have given a go at repairing this wing if it weren’t for the main spar being split in half right near the center-line.
