When you guys are building these wings does the bottom layer remain flat when the glue has set and clamps removed.I found that even though my eagle wing was flat when clapped there is now an 8mm rise to the LE from the bottom edge of the spar.How will this effect the wing ?

Howdy,

Corrosair

I am about to glue in the tail elevator section to the fuzz and am not quite sure if both sides of the elevator are supposed to work independently ? The plans show a staple shaped object connecting both sides.Does the push rod from the servo connect to this ?? What is this staple shape made of and how does it go in ??

any help at this point would be great !!!

Hello headon

when "folding" the wing, it is very important to keep the leading edge down tight against the table, Sean and I both use a wooden jig that is cut an angle. Be sure the LE of the wing is wedged tight into the corner, then clamp the wing trailing edge down. If the wing is built correctly, you should notice a slight undercamber, when removing the completed wing from the jig. see the A-10 pics here

the Corrosair wing is obviously a bit more complicated, but the principles are the same

the elevator joiner is simply a metal wire bent in the shape of a staple, per the plans. you can sharpen the tips to make the metal joiner a bit easier to push into the correx flutes. the elevator control horn is mounted to only one side.

Rusty. Thanks for posting the correx supply link. I find that finding correx is not easy in some places. I will add that link to page 1

A coat hangar will work just fine.

headon, you can just ignore Jane, he is just poking fun at how we Americans use 'guages' to size our wires

Never mind my jack a$$ comments!

You are 100% correct.
It's referred to as the wing incidence, and yes it's set at 0 deg.
It's the imaginary line taken from the wing leading edge to the trailing edge.
(A profiled section is hard to lay down "flat")
Post some photos, it would be great to see your progress!

My corosair ,its been a big learning curve ,cant wait to get this done ... and flying.
Fuzz and wings all 3mm.I cut out every second flute on fuzz and top wing surface to reduce some tension and easier glue down.
Used hot glue on fuzz and contact adhesive on wings.Both take only 30 to 60 sec to go off so the build can continue on all day and night
I use a fan blowing across the work bench continually to get rid of the fumes and it helps the glue to kick off.
Its been an intense few days
