DLG airfoil designed by Dr. Mark Drela,
the wing carries the ag455 to ag47 at the tip. These airfoil have
proven to be best performing, they will cover all the speed range by
using the reflex and camber change for the high speed launch to the
low speed thermal flight.
Wing is hollow molded construction,
integrating the spar system into the wing skin to save weight and
keeping the maximum strength. Sub-spar, leading and trailing edge
are carbon reinforced to keep tortionnal stiffness.
Throw pegs are molded into each wing
tips (left and right) and are actually small winglets to reduce drag. They are
completely attached to the main spar during molding process.
Ailerons are bottom hinged, so
control linkage remains inside of wing, and hinge line is either beveled at
tip or regular cut to reduce flutter at launch.
Wing mount is of pylon type to
reduce drag between fuselage and wing.
Full carbon pod and boom fuselage
has nose cone for easy radio access.
Back of pod has two finger rest for
javelin type launches.
Saddle for the elevator is
pre-molded and ready to bolt on.
