KC9, not to worry it'll be fine. Its built to the ratios I normally use. The elevator is 2% over what is actually needed and rudder is about 4% over. The ailerons are sized to be effective. Larger would cause reverse yah on a undercamber. The airfoil should stay the same as it always works. Ailerons stop short to keep the lower wing from tip stalling in slow flight.

ewo are you putting the ailerons on the top wing. If you do expect issues. Your upper panels look a little short in the picture, but it should be ok. Strongly suggest ailerons on the bottom wing.

Actually looks pretty neat, even the mouse.

Hey what about flat plate wings, 4 ailerons, Rudder, and big power for a 3D one.

I know the ailerons go on the lower wing Tog
Thats why there on the bottom of the wing panels in the picture

Just fired back up the other computer. the top wing is 30" span and the lower is 26" span. Fuse length is 25 3/16" down the center line on the drawing. Lower core is 5" and upper is 5 1/4".
