Hey there, everyone

I just confirmed a bird I'm building may be light enough to break the sound barrier on an L1000!

However, I'm concerned about the structural integrity of my building material. I have no doubt everything will hold up to the acceleration, but I'm concerned about the pressure wave wrecking my airframe. I'm using a 4" LOC cardboard tube wrapped with one layer of the easyglas sock from giant leap with west coast systems laminating epoxy. I've heard of bluietube shattering under supersonic flights, so I'd like to hear what you all think.
