Help!
Lil BIrd

Hi all

Built this kit for competition use and now found that Skybench does not do the ribs on their own so I cant build a spare wing.

I dont usually trace around ribs before building (more fool me) and the plan does not have the individual ribs drawn.

Anyone in a position to supply a rib set for this design?

be lucky

I don't have the rib set, but with the S3014 airfoil, you could make your own.

Hiya

Yep - I printed them up using Profile and each rib chord but I am allergic to balsa dust so can only do so much with the raw material and its especially difficult sanding things like ribs to shape with a mask on, that's why I use lasercut kits and short kits.

I should have asked before shelling out for the kit but not sure why its so difficult for a supplier to sell rib sets when they have to be cut anyway.

Guess I will have to bite the bullet ............
