Getting gun shy now about gluing the wings up without the instruction disc. There is a loose kind of jig for wings to be build inverted but my parts do not seem to lie naturally into this jig. There is some reflex in the wing section but not sure of any incidence changes between root and tip. Looks like scooter built his wings by laying down lower sheeting and gluing to this without the jigging strips ?
Also weighed my wing sheets and they vary from 18gm to 40gm so some selection will be needed to get port/starboard wings close to same weight. Tempted to use 1/16 sheet ( instead of the 2mm ) from my own stock which is contest grade balsa.
Anyone else on here built the RBC Skyray that could throw in some advice ?
