Need to do some cleaning up around here, but I also found couple videos in the mean time.

I will add a heading for this if anyone wants to add videos of interest showing building techniques, setup, etc.

Here is a playlist tutorial of XFLR5. This has to be one of the better ones that I have watched.

Hi Kim -
If you look under post #5 of this thread, you will find a list of Materials and the vendors that supply them.

For pushrods, I would recommend CST or ACP.

Wing Core Templates


Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.

I found what I needed here:
Foam cutting with the Tekoa Feather Cut - part 2 (10 min 46 sec)


My questions had to do with the run in and run out of the template and the minimum vertical dimension at the bottom of the lower template. I have the Comp-U-Foil program and the formica material and the 3M77 spray adhesive. No I just need to get-er-done.

All should be fixed. I tried a random sampling of some to verify they are working again. IF you find a dead link, please let me know which one.
IF a link is outdated and you know where to find the new link, please provide it as well so I can promptly update the database.

Thanks all for the heads up.



Also Cleaning up the thread a little. Deleting all not relevant posts.

Any one have anything new to add while I am here?
