    I wonder if anyone might be interested in learning a bit about basic structure design?
     
    Such as how to calculate loads on truss members, how to figure spar size, and what tube size to use for those loads. Nothing very technically deep, but enough to design a simple frame or wing that could be used to demonstrate static loads, in-flight anomolies, and even ultimate G's to failure. It could be integrated into the Flair Project perhaps. 

    How about I put a 'sample' talk together for review at a monthly meeting?
