Joe's Quad

This is a 7'4" quad built for a guy named Joe who works next door to me. It has a relatively beefy foil, as Joe is a bigger guy. He used to play pro football in fact. It's made with handmilled poplar, balsa and poplar rails, and has handmade birch ply FCS fins with the new Fusion system. Joe's  planning on traveling with it, so he opted for the fin system. As a side note, Joe gave me a tour of his shop where he restores WWII era bomber engines. The level of difficulty of what he does is mind boggling. Imagine trying to restore an engine the size of your living room and with 21 cylinders to boot. It sort of makes what I do look like child's play.
