Thanks , Peter spent a good bit of time on that portion . We wanted it to look more like less of a add on and part of the original design . Tough to do as by nature a canard is a " add on " but you got the idea.

Very nicely done Randy Looking forward to it. Would this design work on the R57-on?

At this time it is for the r-53 only but if it goes well we could see about a later gen version .

Thanks for the positive comments makes the effort worthwhile. The mirror project is nearing completion as well and the side splitters are in stock

Amazing photo. What did you shoot that with? Real light leaks or a filter?
