you could also use tissue paper just cut out the panel size onto the paper and use 3m-77 spray glue to apply it if you're afraid you'll poke a hole in the mylar by using sharpie

Re: Wright Stuff C

I have seen one or two turn right over the past few years. However, the torque of the prop wants to naturally turn it left, so when you make it turn right, it is fighting the prop, which may result in more drag and poorer times. But, even at Nationals there have been a few turn right. Coach Chuck g...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Assuming the prop is turning CCW when viewed from the front (which must be the case unless you built a prop and it is backwards), then winding will not cause turn in wrong direction. Tail should be tilted so right side (facing from the rear) is down. Look also at any yaw of the tail group. Vertical...

Re: Wright Stuff C

So this year's rules allow for a lot of flexibility regarding motor weight, allowing for various types of widths and lengths of motors to be used. What are the advantages/disadvantages of having long/short, wide/narrow, heavy/light motors? Anyone have success with a particular combination of width,...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Anyone know if the Ikara props that come with the FF kit are flaring or not? -Rós They're not flaring; aren't they a standard 24cm ikara prop? This is what FF's flaring prop looks like: https://www.freedomflightmodels.com/images/broadBladeFlaring.jpg I don't remember them being in the FF kit. the p...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Anyone know if the Ikara props that come with the FF kit are flaring or not?

Re: Wright Stuff C

Klast, Good job explaining. Warp in reference to the ground is another way to look at this question. In your example, the wing leading edge would be parallel to the ground and the TE tip would be angled down towards the ground. Brian T. lol thanks! here i found a part of a source from soinc and dre...

Re: Wright Stuff C

I'm almost done building the Freedom Flight kit but I'm struggling to understand one part of the instructions. When you use the dime to "warp the Left Trailing Edge downward about 1/8'" what exactly is the warpage measured against? The right trailing edge? The left leading edge? The left trailing e...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Yeah. so you know the rules state that the wing has to be less than or equal to 35 cm in length and 7 cm in width so start there try to get relatively close to those measurements then take the surface area of the wing and start at around 25% of that to equal the surface area of the stabilizer this ...
