Hurricane Isaac Reprive!

Thankfully my area is spared, so I had some time to prepare the wing: cut and baked a Depron wing blank; arranged wing graphics to allow folding over the leading edges; and printed the covering. Because my printer's max paper size is legal (8.5x14), I can't print the 15" wing pattern on one piece of paper.

Next step is to form and attach a CF leading edge, make a trough to house the aileron "cable" (using Pete's method of bead wire inside Teflon tubing), and finally ... apply the tissue. Hopefully will have the wing done in a couple of days.
