Sorry, i'm not sure i understand the question. As specified in the name of the sheet and folder, these parts are made of 1.5mm plywood, not balsa. The 3mm balsa sidewalls will cover the fuselage from firewall to tail, so that includes the 1.5mm plywood parts in your pictures.

I have a somewhat crazy idea ...
Can someone tell me the approximate weight of one wing half?
Then I can estimate whether my project is feasible.
Thank you!

Hi,
My wing panels are 265g each, without servo, linkage or covering. Weight with covering should be around 320g.

Thanks Alex! That sounds good. My wing will be a total of 50g heavier ... so doable.

Hello!
Since it is a wetter summer in our country, l find an our every day and polish Alexs Vortex kit a bit.
Its amazing how nice things go together. At the moment l have made both directions, fixed and movable.
I wonder what kind of hinges Alex recommends for height, direction and ailerons?
Congratulations again to Alex for the outstanding work he shared with us.
Unfortunately, l cant take pictures...

Hi Robi,
I'm glad everything goes well with the assembly, please keep us updated.
I bought a few bags of Radiosouth CA hinges some years ago and used them for all my models:
https://radiosouthrc.com/radio-south...ts/pro-hinges/
I have the 1/4 scale version (yellow bag cover). These are probably the strongest CA hinges that you can find, but i think other CA hinges may work as well.

Alex, good afternoon! I wanted to ask, tell me, please, what is the length of the fuselage? I wanted to know the exact size in millimeters.
