New fiberglass UAV airframe coming to HobbyKing

No product listing yet, but will be on later this week according to HobbyKing. Will be intersting to compare with the EPP foam one that I just got (see below), which seems perfect. Smaller than a Skywalker, but still plenty of room for UAV gear. The fuselage is a bit thin, but it fits APM perfectly!

Some more pics of the new fiberglass one:

I my experience fiberglass airframes all have a weak point that breaks. I will bet you a beer that this will break where the tail joins the body. I like this airframe but the first thing I would do is run carbon fiber table along the entire length along the bottom of the airframe and then around all the hatches
