Cool use for 3D printing. How do these plastics handle exposure (heat and cold), and how do they age? Are they brittle? Do you have to consider the orientation of the lamina (for want of a better word) when you're putting them under stress?

Hi Andy,
No idea how these will hold out under any of these conditions but they will get a good thrashing with this kite and we will just have to see, certainly look / feel up to the job.
Put it this way ...can't be any worse than the off the shelf connectors that were on it.
