Wanted
What is this dlg wing?

I have had this wing for a while now, and it was initially given to me... but i have no idea who made this wing... wether its hand made, or a production wing. Maybe someone can help identify the origination of this wing for me? Its balsa sheeted and glass covered. carbon spar. etc..

I'd like to sell the wing, but first id like to find out what it is.

Thanks guys!

-Colin

Very similar but I don't think so. Notice on the website that the wing servo are in the fuse w/ control rods coming out of the fuse and connecting to horns near the root. Could also be a Solo or Enigma DLG.

Apparently they're all the same Radina/HighlightSAL/Enigma/Solo:

I'd guess that this is an early one as the page I linked to in my post mentions that the later models have some extra carbon reinforcement at the leading edge of the wing where it meets the fuse.

I've got a Radina/spin etc, tip shape is not right for a Radina. And I believe an Enigma is not the same as what I have though.

IDK looks like an Enigma/Solo wing to me, same platform, shape, tips look very simular, same ailerons-how they taper at the end, same material-molded wing w/ fg over balsa sheet core w/ cf capstrips, etc. The only thing that looks different your wing is missing the little bit of cf triangle on the front cntr sec, and the paint is mismatch (not even) on the two sides. Like the other member said, maybe yours is an earlier version.

If they're all the same wing-airfoil, platform, build, then maybe they are setup differently for different planes-for the Radina-wing servos in the fuse, for the Enigma-wing servos in the wing. Anyway, at least ya know what it probably is.

indeed. the original owner that i got the wing from said he "modded" it with servos in the wings because he could fit the other servos in the fuse. So it could very well be a radina... but none the less, the radina, and enigma, and the other names are all identical. no varitations other than name and color of paint.

This is the spin I have. If might well be a revision of an earlier plan form.

I corrected my #4 & #8 post to say Solo not Spin. Hope this clears up any confusion.
