The Dan Johnson article in more informative about the 103s future. There is suggestion that Just will eliminate the tail boom and go to a truss. ?? They say that it is over weight at the moment, but it will come down. Oratex 600 could be of help as well with that. It does look like it would be fun to fly ( 75 degree day no wind) :shock:

What’s that gray and white striped thing he’s rolling on during takeoff?

I watched it again… I cannot see what you were talking about? What was the time on the video when you saw it?

Hey Max, I think he’s referring to “concrete runway “. With those little tires.... if I get a 103 I’ll fatten it up with turf tires :D :D

Here's another video that contains a lot of footage of the new Just 103 from Sun n Fun. Just 103 starts at about 1 minute into the video.

Clark,
That is a good idea! I can’t imagine what a 6 inch diameter tube would cost. However, I’m sure it would add a little cost to the kit, but it would be light weight and strong.

I'm sure the cost would be crazy, but the boom should be carbon fiber. ;)

I'm guessing you could save between 15 to 20 lbs vs Aluminum. A lot more if it is steel.
