Default Vendetta wing area??

Hey all,
I think the vendetta wing area (Lyle Larsons qm-40) is around 650 sq inches. Could someone please confirm this.
Thanks,
Erik

I don't think its that many squares.

Its 56" long, and I'm guessing maybe 11" in the center tapering out to 6" at the tips. Which would be closer to 475 sq "

I can measure when I get home.

The wing rules are on less then 400, and most of us run around 405

Hi Guys...

New to these forums but not too new to racing...
I have tried to contact Lyle Larsen via email asking about a Dago QM Kit... But I have no answer after around a week...
I am after a Dago or Vendetta style QM40 for over here in Australia... I'm sure that Lyle is probably busy churning out planes for you guys but am interested in getting a couple of kits from him...

I'm after a Dago QM Fibreglass Fuzz and Foam Core wing kit... Plus a Vendetta FAI Fibreglass Fuzz and Foam Core Wing Kit... love the look of these planes but if the Dago isn't available I'd be interested in the Vendetta QM Fuzz and foam wing core kit also...

G'day Diggs...

Thanks for the reply...
Calling from Aussie Land might be a problem... I'm not sure of the time zone he would be in etc... Also with the international exchange numbers I don't know what to call him on?

Welcome to the forums! I was lucky enough to have a trip to Australia back in 1998, worked in Albany for a week or so. That Victoria Bitter is pretty good stuff..

I've never found it around here in the Kansas City area. Wish I could! One could get used to such divine liquid. It would instantly clear the balsa dust from your throat when building...
