Le Virus with that frame will start to fly in quite low wind around 2Mph and will not flex too much in high wind around 18-20Mph. The trade-off is: less momentum without weight.

You need the following materials to make a Structil version.


You will get good results with this list of connectors. If they aren't available, don't hesitate to use another brand.
