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

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.
