New wing

***G3 UPDATE ***

Here's a quick bench fly of the new tails and wings for the updated WTwF .

As an effort to continually develop improvements to the WTwF, I laid up some 60" wings and bagged some tails so I could do a little MOM racing at Blossom Valley.

Fuse is a shortened rebuild of the original.....I am calling this one WTwF SC for "short coupled". We are hoping that this one can pull through the corners even better than the original planform:

Wings: 60", AG04 @8.5%
Fuse: 35" vice 38" original
Tail: 8020 @7%

Tail is removable, and the wings have magnetic attachment on wing rod

****************

Here is a new 2M wing I laid up for the WH TWF. Came out pretty clean. For the next set I'll make the mylars about 3mm longer cordwise to make the LE exposure a little thinner.

Foil: Modified AG04
Root: 7"
Tip: 4.5"
Span: 2M (total, 38" per wing)
Sweep: 1.25"

Layup: 3.2 glass on bias, 4.1 Uni 2" strip, 3.2 glass bias.

LE: Kevlar, Uni, 5.7 Carbon Cloth

Tips: Extra 1.5" strip top/bottom for burlyness.
