Hangar 18 had a very successful first flight of the new F2 prototype on 14 May.  

The new plane has shoulder wing design with the wing mounted on a pylon on top of the fuselage. The wing houses all of the electronics with the exception of the ESC and motor leaving the full length of the fuselage open for payload and batteries. A new payload pod system was developed for the F2 that allows full access to two payload pods via 4 screws in the nose and tail. The wing bolts on to the top of the plane and can be broken down into three pieces or made as a single piece wing. More information will be added to the Hangar 18 website this week.

Hi Eduardo.

No, it's a proprietary EPP/fiberglass hybrid tube.  It's extremely strong and very light.  This plane's all up weight with 6000 mAH battery is 4 lbs ready to fly.
