Does anyone know if the tentative 2010 rules from the Summer Institute included any limit on the chord of the main wing?

I understand it is very likely that the 2010 WS rules will maintain the 1.5 g maximum rubber motor weight and 7.0 gram minimum airplane weight (not counting the rubber motor).

Thanks.

So, is it known for sure that Wright Stuff will be an event in 09-10?
Is it possible that it will not be a monoplane, like this year??
Anyone know where i could find the event rotation schedule that was removed from the official SOINC site?
Thanks!

first to get the event rotation, just go to soinc.org
second it will definetily be an event next year
third, it will most likely be a monoplane, but you do have to wait until the rules come out

That's not the event rotation. They stopped publishing that this year. I still have an old copy but it's not incredibly helpful as they never seemed to follow it anyway.

In addition, this site has carbon steel single edge blades, don't know if they are as sharp as the old carbon double edged ones:
http://www.americancuttingedge.com/Stoc ... eedge.html

Or this site has all kinds of carbon steel blades, including the old double edge kind that are half as thick as the above single edge:
http://www.emsdiasum.com/microscopy/pro ... lades.aspx

And if you want 1,000,000 of them:
http://www.diytrade.com/china/4/product ... blade.html

Or check e-bay, that's where I got mine from.

half as thick= better right?

thanks for the links. the one from a2z corp seem to be the best value but it's not a big difference.
