I've been giving some thought to the wing roots and a way to make them.I like Marks thrust race idea and home making them is feasible.A sheet of 6mm nylon6 sufficient for 8 races@125mm is less than 20.If milling them myself doesn't work out I can get them made locally.
To mount them I have thought of cutting the root shape out of foam and inserting rods or tubes around the area of the race circumference-as per the revised drawing.
A sleeve for the central pivot and the wing joiner tubes plus a wiring harness way also inserted.
The whole thing glassed on it's three sides.
This is the lightest way I can think of to mount the races and keep them rigid in the structure.
As always thoughts and comments welcome.
Regards Stuart.
