Great, look forward to your build pics.
Forgot to mention the glue Iam using for the complete model HK type insta-cure+
And when Iam trying to be patient Iam using the slower HK type HC-50-1100C and the thinner version.
Sorry that will be my mistake, because on the file I told RBC it should be 4mm, but on the drawings its 6mm.
But to be honest 4mm is a better choice, because you will have to send less and only need to make the chamfer from the rib to the trailing edge.
Here is a detail of how it will finally look like on your model when its sanded into shape.
Hope the pic makes it all clear.
Hoping to make it more clear here a little detail on the reinforcement.
This is how it should look like with a 6mm spar.
Here is the detail on my RES-Eagle which is with the 4mm spar and reinforcement on top.
Yes it looks like the scale of the servo is not correct, because it should be a 9 gr servo. Thanks for mentioning.
Here's a pic to show you, more pics later.
No the leading edge will stay the same 4mm.
Will come back on the two rods.
For all, the file for the 6mm rod is send to RBCkits so ask for the modified version of the RES-Eagle.

Peter, thanks for selecting the RES-Eagle for your next project.
You can modify to 6mm using a file which runs from 4 to 6mm, it works fine and holds the hole in the centre.
Fixing the rods were they meet, is reinforced, with a small piece of rod chamfered and glued on top.
For all who are interested in the RES-Eagle cnc set for RBCkits,
Sorry should have done it earlier but will modify the file for RBC to 6mm, so new sets will hopefully have the modification for the 6mm carbon spar.
When you will use the 4mm spar it won't be a problem but you need to make sure to keep the speed down.
I had the flutter in a dive and one time on the bungee, when I pulled not enough elevator and let the speed to build up to much. But that was on a RES completion bungee, not the red silicon bungee from Hobby King which I use most of the time.
Don't have a lot of building pics because I went a little to fast building the RES-Eagle.
But still have some so here we go.
Some more pics lateron.
TP, Iam sure it will do fine on the dunes, on a relax summer evening.
The wings are designed for low wind, so be carefull on a slope.

My compliments on the build you really are a craftsman.
|Thread: RES-Eagle Glider RCME March 2018|
Time is going fast and Iam looking forward to the summer evening to fly my RES-Eagle some more.
I will start here a thread about my new glider and will post all the pics I have.
Hope you like it and start your build to be ready for the summer.
Here some pics to start with.
RES-Eagle and the RedEagle which I think you all know, both model are 2mtr wingspan
More pics later.
|Thread: E-Glider new design called RedEagle|
Looking good but not sure if the Lipo will need to go that far forward.
Not sure if you know, the cg on the plan is the old position, its better to set the cg at 90mm.
All looking great and a very clean build my compliments.
That's a great start and looking forward to more pics.
Enjoy the build and look forward to the pics.
Thanks for your post and great that you selected the RedEagle for some relax flying.
The 10mm washout is for making the model turn better, but its not a big difference, because RedEagle's without the washout will also turn just fine. You don't have to build the washout in the wing you can also make the washout during the covering of the wing.
For clevises on the RedEagle or for models in general, check here **LINK** they all work just fine. For me I use a 90 degrees bend on one end and on the other end a metal clevis with a solder when the controls are neutral. After the maiden hold the rudder and elevator in the flight position, heath the clevis again to soften the solder and set the trim on the transmitter neutral. The model will be in trim for life.
Don't forget to post some pics of your build I can never get enough of build pics of the RedEagle.
And when you have questions just ask.

Iam using sheet hinges and its because, when you hit the ground with the rudder, it can move and won't break.
Its no problem gluing the rudder in place it will be okay in flight.
Thats a beauty thanks for posting the pics and thanks for building the Wave it looks great and love the colors.
