Default winglets

Hi rightflyer,

I made them to look like what you see on Don Incoll's web site. They are 1.5 inches high at the trailing edge(aileron hinge line)and taper to 0 at the thickest part of airfoil.
Yes, I did attach them with clear RTV.
I wouldn't have believed the diferance they made if I hadn't experienced it myself.
The Wasp is still not as smooth and easy to handle in knife edge as my Morris Topcap, around 1/2 throttle seems to give the best results for me.
And also, the winglets are just on the top of the airfoil.

Good luck with your wasp
