I'm still trying to get my head around how you line everything up when building! Nice work Palo!

Hi,

I see this is your first post. Welcome to RC Groups. I just love the look of that wing. I'm sure it's hard to build. Nice work.

If CAD programme is once modified for it - it is becoming much easier (thanks God)
I see a huge potention in this CCW concept thanks to its lightweight construction and incredible (torsional) stiffness I have never seen with balsa models (neither with the models with D-box) of a the similar dimensions.

More info about CCW is available at FXJ Forum FB group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gi...3164809&v=wall

hi Bob, thank you for the warm welcome . It was not hard to build ( several hours ), but it was fun to make a calculating program for individual CCW profiles on the elliptical wing (a few days, but now works OK)

Hi Steve

Where do you start what part of the wing builds first, could you put a drawing of a single rib so we can see what you do for interlocking them together.

Thanks
Don

Hi Don

For example , this is several ribs of wing at Palo model (there is a total 116 pieces)

Hi Steve

Thanks for the rib drawing that clears thing's up , does the CCW design take more wood to build as it looks like many more ribs are used than a standard rib layout.

Since you are using carbon for L.E. - T.E. and spars does the weight come out about the same as a standard wood wing

That design sure does look cool i bet in the air it really looks good.

There is a very nice build thread over in the hand launch area talking about geodetic wing design. The thread poster, Geode, builds a 34" and 60" plane. Great reading. here it is.
