Subject: DLG rod
Hi Guys, I have only now finally started my bug. I have pretty much made everything. I just need some advice on the DLG peg in the wing. How strong does the peg joint need to be? I can imagine it will be taking a lot of stress in the wing tip. I was going to use a satay skewer of about 1/8" diameter and Polyeurethane glue it in. with a coupld of ply doublers.. Any tips or experience would be appreciated..
