Thanks Charles. The good news is that the GWS forward mount is the right height so I can use it as the aft mount with the Millennium RC forward mount rather than trying to make a perfect shim. That should level out the wing as you suggested.

I'm not sure I follow you on 'fuselage joint" though. I'll look through the thread and see if I can figure that out.

Thanks for the help.

The one on the right, for reasons we have discussed in depth here already many, many times.

You Lucky Dog Sir Tech! Up Close and personnal!
I brung me some reading material to VAMC for our 'doubled' visit today, a book of airfoil sections,- one of those easy to read modes= 80% pictures,: Which brings me to a question for Don:
How about the various low ( 5-7%) thickness " wakefield" 'foils for a canard? looks like they could be workable= gonna take a tour to an online simulator, probably run a vid!

You lucky Dog, Sir Tech! I'still never seen a real one flying.
Here's my model:
Starship Flying (2 min 13 sec)


I did get to visit Bob Scherer's Starship at Orange County Airport when it was being serviced. It is one of my all-time Transport Design Icons. Along with the Lambretta, E-Type Jaguar, Cutty Sark and the Chrysler Building.

As usual, depends on the details, including the details of the particular application and its mission profile. When I design a flying surface, the LAST thing that gets defined are the airfoil shapes (note the plural, very rarely does a single airfoil meet the different requirements along an entire span).

Where is the typical max thickness location, and how much camber?

GWS Slow Stick Canard

Here is a shot sent to me by friend John J. The model is in a climb from UP elevator. It usually flies level even at high throttle.

Progress

Finally made some marked progress.

I am now working on the winglets. Once that is complete, I will need to do all the initial CG work and connect the servos.
