In this video here we have an in-depth look at how the process is accomplished for making the wing ribs for the poly fiber (Stitt’s) process. Although we are moving away from the states process and concentrating on the background sailcloth covered wing, we still offer this as an option for those that wish to use the poly fiber process.

Manufacturing Wing Ribs (Building the EMG-6)
In this video we go from start to finish with the manufacturer of the wing ribs. We show several methods by which you can make your own rib bending fixtures.
Flight Control Gap Seals (From Pool Noodles)
In this "how it's made" episode of building the EMG-6 we look at a cool little trick for converting pool noodles into flight control gap seals.

Tube Marking (Building the EMG-6)
Another episode of "Building the EMG-6". In this episode we look at the process of marking tubing. Pretty much every component on the EMG 6 uses tubing for construction. In this video we show you how to accurately and easily mark tubing for these applications.

**Load Testing** EMG-6 Electric Motor Glider Fittings
In this video we show some of the processes by which we load test many of the components on the EMG-6 electric motor glider. We have a test fixture which we have built from steel tube and a hydraulic system off of an old dump truck. We have a 10,000 pounds load cell and digital readout for keeping track of the load imposed on individual components as we pull them to failure.
