Default RE: Wing Mold

Test flights were this past Saturday, and they went very good. I originally flew it with an O.S. .46 AX and it handled 125 mph with ease. After two trim flights, I removed the O.S. and put a Nelson .40 Q500 motor on. I flew it twice with the Nelson, approaching speeds of 170 mph. I had plenty of elevator throw and really snapped some turns and the wing held up great.

Everything is still solid, so I think I have a winner. Now I just gotta cut 3 oz minimum. I think I can easily get 1-2 out of the next wing, and finding that last oz may take some time.

I found that laying up glass on Rohacell is a pain in the rear. A friend suggest laying the glass up on wax paper, and then flipping it onto the rohacell. I think I will give this a try, if it works, it will save me quite a bit of resin right there.
