Gull wing design
Can anyone please direct to a source on building a SIMPLE gull wing?
I want to build an electric glider(V tail) with a 6 feet (72 in) span gull wing with 8in chord and plan to use a basic Clark Y airfoil. Materials available are cheap, beady EPS foam, hardwood spars for LE,main spar & TE, 1-3mm ply for dihedral bracing and thick cardboard for sheeting at dihedrals and finally covered with regular 2in wide packaging tape.
What I am trying to figure out is:
1. Size of each panel - not more than 4 panels as I want to avoid the horizontal center section.
2. Dihedral angle/height - in degrees and cm
I am thinking of 15in+21in+21in+15in with a TLAR approach for dihedrals.
