Default RE: 1/2a speed plane wing design

Chris,

Get you butt over to the 1/2a forum and look at the SWR's. Without question the solid 1/4 balsa wing is the way to go. In place of CP's inlaid spar I forgo it and just .50/.75 glass cloth and waterbased PolyU the wing. It makes the wing plenty strong and you can use the top skin for your hinge.

LAter,
Tim
