A Quick Wing..

The basic wing was very quick to build once the ribs were cut. It follows Pete's plan pretty much exactly but without the servo bays. A few wood sizes were changed for economy, expediency or necessity! The main spars are slightly smaller than the up-sized plan but the rear are bigger. The tip parts remained at 1/8 balsa etc.

Before gluing the wing halves together, I need to sort out what is needed for the torque-tubes. After my experience with the Ansaldo, I'll make sure I use TUBE this time, not rod

Span measures at about 56.5" with a chord of 11 - about 4.3 sq ft.
At 12 oz/sq ft, I should aim for about 48-50 oz max - around 1.5 Kg. So I need to be careful.

Pat (havin' fun)
