Airfoil camber?

Good to see you have the bladder production mastered Jordan! It took me ages to get it right, mainly because I was trying to make them out of textured drop sheet plastic. As soon as tried heavier, plain surface stuff, it worked fine.

What camber did you adjust the HD45 airfoil to by the way?

Hey jordan, have you fitted out your one yet? are you going torque rods or wing servos for yours? I haven't started yet, just considering the options and aquiring the build materials. I think i'll do wing servos, it's just easier that way and it's been so long since I did torque rods Idont know how I'd get them in there. Would make it look clean tho, and stronger wings.

I'm still waiting on servos. I'm putting them in the wings. Servos and horns on the bottom. Top hinge.

But if you reckon that torque rods would work better for you then go for it.

I don't think I would be able to build them in then fit the wing through the slot and get it all hooked up. I'm going wing servos.

Yeah I was thinking that you might need to stick on the TE after the wing is through the fuse. So that the horns can bend right back and fit through the wing slot. Or maybe there's some other trick to it.

HD45? Damn it, someone found my "secret" foil. I've been putting those HD foils on my heavy stuff for years. I like em!

I thought I remember seeing a thread that showed how to do internal linkages when the wing has to go through the fuse like the Chaos but I'd have to dig around for it.

Quick, someone with more patience than me go find it for me and post a link

Thanks for that Jordan. That makes it look way too easy!

I'll show you how it's done.....dead easy......

You just remove the TE behind the linkages that way they can lay down flat. That part of the TE is inside the fuse anyway so you don't need it.

do you plug the hole that's left in one side of the fuse? I imagine there'll be a little opening there that's larger than the wing less aileron. I guess I can't wrap my head around the part of the linkage that goes into the aileron laying down flat.

Yeah, I talked it through with Greg today at his shop while we were working on some other stuff and it's starting to make more sense. I just haven't ever had my control rods lay down flat and out of the way. Or at least out of the way it looks like we'll need for this wing opening. Good thing I trust Brian knows wth he's doing

It took me a while but I finally got this thing maidened. I was real nervous as it's the first time I've been to the slope since last January But the maiden went well. Really easy to fly. AUW came to 38.4oz. It seems to go vertical quite well for such a light plane. I'd love to see a heavy one doing 1/2pipes on a coastal cliff
