Default Wing problem on corospit

I am building a corospit scaled up for a 61 size engine. My wing spar was only 3/4 inch high and I am now worried that the wing may not have enough curve in it across the top due to the spar not being high enough. The wing is 65" long but seems fairly flat. It does have a curve across the top but Im not sure if its enough to give proper lift.
Any ideas???

Thanks,

Troy.

I think the Standard SPAD answer here applies.
Try it, Fly it. If you dont like it, change it.
What have you got to loose? couple of buck worth of coro!?

I think you will be pleasently suprised...just make darn sure your ailerons are parallel to the aircraft's thrust line (parallel to the flat bottom part of the fuselage) for neutral.

Thanks Guys,

Thats all I wanted to hear. I didnt want to take off and have it drop like a lead balloon and then have someone here tell me. "What did you expect with such a small curve on the wing". Better to at least find out if it will fly first.

Troy.
