Hi Paul, I have had thoughts in the past about building an eagle spine - either 22" or 44" - using carbon fibre. Was never sure about making the joins though - don't know if there's an appropriate & reliable glue for carbon fibre. Hadn't thought about mixing it with resing pieces - seems like a good idea. Just wondering what your thoughts were on the viability of the CF spine & why you chose to go with brass instead?

Any info appreciated.

Cheers,

Lee

Oh, and I assume your CF/Resin spine is sold?

the resin and cf spine is strong and incredibly light and was very easy to build. the main reason for going with brass was that i have a heavy passenger pod and felt it needed a brass spine to take the weight of the pod. if i had a light pod i would have stuck with the resin spine. the spine is still available. open to offers.
cheers Paul

Is that the chemiwood Passenger pod Paul??
How much does the Pod weigh?

I forgot to ask, is only the spine brass and the cages resin or carbon fiber or is it all brass??

Richard if i can just add,your acrylic passenger pod would have been fine for this spine,so would the legpods and walkways,as i have the cages/spine too. (all the parts you slod are very light

if its Pauls walkways/legpods and passenger pod,they would be a bit heavy for the carbon fibre spine/cages,but Chris Potter did manage it by bolting the pod to the walkways,to keep it all as one unit,this makes taking the pod off a bit of a pain.
