Airframe Parts Arrive

Over the last few weeks the numerous components of the Pathfinder airframe have arrived, from both local and international suppliers. For the purposes of strength and weight efficiency the airframe is based on a convolute wound paper/phenolic core, with a seamless glass/ epoxy overwrap.
