Theoretically you should cut in the middle, but it all depends on how you transfer the plans to the depron. I recommend that you measure the slots. When cut right, they should be exactly 6 mm (0.236 inches) wide, in order to fit the matching notches.

it maybe because the PDF is 51.86 X 41.44 and my plotter will only do 32 inches wide....

I re-opened the pdf in Illistrator and set the line weight to .5, cropped the canvas to 36"x42" and re-saved it as pdf. Now the lines are razor thin.

I'm cutting today. I think I'll try to cut the slots in the wing at an angle. Nice build by the way!

Hey Bill,
That is NICE did u cut that by hand? and is that the full size version

Actually this may be interesting. By bowing the deck it turns the slots in at an angle. This also give the profile a little more realistic look. I might try heat treating the deck to make a permanent bow.

G-unit, yes cut by hand and straight edge and it's full size. I'm gonna use rudders also.

Bill, do you think that cutting the slots straight might be a good thing, or should I try to cut them at an angle?

I'd like to thank you fellas for the replies regarding prop size and resulting handling characteristics. Torque was one effect I had not thought about but probably is a greater factor with these narrower wing spans.

Cheers,

Tomhe,
I won't know till tonight when I get a chance to heat warp the deck. It might also add a slight undercamber to the center area of the wing.

I've completed cutting the parts and test fitted them. I see now that I placed the bottom 6 mm below the side profile. It should have been in line with the side profile.
