This is a Wingeron that I am working on. The Fuse and the Wing Block are Ward Hagaman's handy work, I just took the liberty to anodize aluminum bits to toughen up a little and make em look pretty.

*** UPDATE ***

New wings. 60" RG14 mod (DD) Root and SD7003 Tip. 4.1 Uni, 3.2 glass on bias, 1.4 veil. Basswood tips. Painted in the mylars.

The V-Tails are removable. The tails are just 1/8" light balsa with two layers of .75 glass on the bias...

Canopy is held on via windshield wiper blade metal ribs with a notch bent into it to catch the front lip of the canopy opening.

SPECS:

Root Wing = 7" - DD928416
Tip Wing = 5" - SD7003
Sweep = 0.875
Wingspan = 60"
Dihedral = yes a little

Root Tail = 4.5"
Tip Tail = 1.75"
sweep tail = 2.75"
*Next up larger tail surfaces

Tail moment = 24"

Incidence = 0-0

AUW 37 w/new wings 0 ounces of lead in the nose.

CG (tuned) = 36% MAC
