Hi all,
Do you guys know, by any chance, whether the full size Tripacer had a flat type rudder and elevator section or were these fully symmetrical airfoil?

Regards

Reuben

Cool thanks RLT. I am trying to give this plane a shot designing it from scratch. I like this plane. I had a Clipped Wing SIG Cub before and it flew great. This plane should have the same flying characteristics as Cub. Presently I have my hand full on another project so I might do it parttime.

Thanks again

Reuben
