    Has anyone done a V boom (can go by the name ‘canoe’ ‘Park Avenue’ or ‘trough’ boom) using a carbon tube with ply wings?

    very roughly like this in cross section


    or this (yes the tube is probably too small)


    I suppose you could attach the plywood mechanically and/or with epoxy resin or putty?

    add easy jacks to taste?
