so yes i have decided to make a shifty fully airfoiled. i started with the basic template i have been using to make my wings. so i sat there for a good hour trying to figure out how i am goin to get an airfoiled wing out of this. did my research online and found zaginutz website. http://home1.gte.net/texhills/index.html
i read thru the whole site for ideas and yes i found what i was looking for.
first. i took the paper off of the foam by using a rod, teared and lifted the corner of the 20x30 sheet. i did this both sides.
then i traced the wing onto the peeled foam board, i left 2" all the way around except the leading edge of the wing.
i beveled the leading edge of the peeled foam wing, 45degrees
to make the airfoil . i cut a strip of regular foam
one side height is 3/4 and the other 1/4in
and i followed the same technique they used in zaginutz
after that strip is glued. i started to glue the top wing .keeping the leading edge flush .
repeat same procedure on other wing.
cut the the middle excess peeled foam even with bottom wing
now added the spar
now its time to make the aifoil shape. first , i made sure that both halves are glued together. then i wanted to make sure both side are even shape . after thats done i started gluing everything in place.
so this time its time to take a trip to the store.
