Rick, your spar is doing the famous "banana" trick. Perfectly normal. Not to worry. Ours did, too. best to you.

Hi bill,
Glad to hear you are coming along on your build. If you send pics to robbie he can upload on here for you. Keep going! Ive never seen another xenos in person except for the factory one. Chris the site admin guy can also help you in directions for loading the pics.
Keep at it!

Bill, where are you located? I am ready to rivet the 2nd wing. I,m using solids to save weight to the top skins & wherever I can reach.

Moved my Xenos from home garage to the hangar. Used a u-haul 26-foot truck - worked very well. All I have to do now is to attach the wings, learn how to fly, and then fly it (just a few more months to go :-)

See the gear fairings are mounted without the wheel pants. Is this the way it will be finished or are wheel pants just not on at this time?

I actually had the wheel pants on prior to the move. I had to take them off in order not to damage while loading/unloading and transporting. The u-haul truck has two bumps inside due to the truck's wheels, so they could damage the plane's wheel pants while transporting.
