Hey Kevlar,

Two weekends ago, I tried playing around with a wood frame with greenhouse glazing over it for an aerocap.

I had problems with trying to get the wood angles to work right. I am not much of a carpenter, and it really didn't work out.

It looks like with your pvc pipes, you were able to make angles work by using PVC T-connections as a swivel.

I see lots of screws in the photos. Did you just use self-tapping screws straight through the FRP into the PVC tube?

Did you have any trouble while heating the panels to bend them? Any over melting, or heating the tube underneith?
