Wing assembly

The Slow-G wing is designed to hold rotor pylons on its tips, and to fit into Slow Stick wing mounts without modification or adjustment. The longitudinal member's length is identical to stock wing's chord and it attaches to stock wing mounts.

Measure 3 1/2 inches from the front of the 3/16x2 plank. Glue the triangular wing supports to it so that their fronts are 3 1/2 inches from the front of the plank, and the supports themselves form a dihedral saddle.

One side of each wing panel comes angled at 12.5 degrees so as to fit the saddle. Note that you have one left and one right wing and there is only one correct way to put them together. (In kits shipped prior to 4/30, wing panels did not have the angle cuts and the modeler must sand the appropriate angle in. If you have one of these early kits and want a set of angled panels, PM me) Dry-fit the panels to make sure they fit together with no gaps over the saddle and glue them in.

After the glue dries, turn the assembly over and mark the middle of the plank; glue the 1/8x3/32 spruce stick along this line. This stick will ensure the wing doesn't move and stays centered in its mount.

You can strangthen the wing with a piece of strapping tape across the top of the now-joined wing panels.
