Exoskeleton wing design - how carbon fiber makes it possible

The wing of the DarkAero 1 is strong enough to support thousands of pounds of lift load while remaining exceptionally light.

Part of the secret behind this is it's made from carbon fiber composite. However, there's more to its structure than meets the eye. In this video, we discuss the design of the composite structures inside the wing of the DarkAero 1 and what makes them different.
