If u guys got ideas for me to add on here post here. Also for FAQ."TheChiScientist (talk) 12:30, 12 June 2018 (UTC)"

I'm pretty sure A/B/C grain types have little to do with quality. If I remember correctly, they're the orientation at which the stick or sheet is cut and influence tensile vs. compressive strength somewhat. --Unome (talk) 16:38, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Whoops completely forgot about this... On the contrary Unome, I would say grain types are crucial to getting a top-tier balsa build as they help reinforce its strength naturally. Yet you are correct about the orientation at which the stick or sheet is cut and how the influence of tensile vs. compressive strength helps in a build.TheChiScientist (talk) 13:08, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

I agree that they're crucial, just not in the way your page describes. There are plenty of uses for C grain that depend on the orientation of its grain. --Unome (talk) 17:49, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

You make a valid point yet in a bridge I see no beneficial uses for C grain as by my own experience C grain can be detrimental to a build under intense stress. The main point I am getting at is to have a quality bridge you must focus on the wood you are using as it does impact performance. I learned that the hard way.TheChiScientist (talk) 21:24, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
