Is that Super Zoom 4D XXL's wing a real airfoil? Are the


ailerons part of the wing, or, do they have to be hinged??

Thanks..

Yep, full symetrical airfoil. Ails. are molded as part of the wing with a V notch in the bottom of the wing for a hinge line. They're fairly stiff so I cut through the line about 1 1/2 in from the end and cut the hinge line about 6 in. then leave another uncut about 1 1/2 in. Alternate all the way to the centre but leave about 2 in at the inner end where the horn goes. Alternatives are hot glue, which I use for a hinge if I break one in a prang, or Dubro plastic hinges.

Wow, that is just like the RC Factory Yak-54, Yak-55, and SU-29


which are the best flying airplanes that I know, bar none.. EPP as well, 39 in wingspan.. They are SOOO smooth flying..

Yep David Kyjovsky designed them all and isn't given the credit he deserves. My favorite is the Zoombi which I put a flying tail and pull,pull on both elev. and rudder. Does obscene stuff a plane like this isn't supposed to do, yet flies on a rail in level flight.
