Subject: Ribs on extended wing bug
If you build the extended-wing, dont just add another w-3 rib. If you do your leading edge will have a funny kink or joggle to it because you have changed the taper of the wing with the extra w-3. Instead make all the first 4 ribs the same length as w-3(Even though w-1,w-2 and w-3 ribs look the same length they are not and thats what causes the joggle)that will give you a straight leading edge through the second w-3 and then a smooth taper to the tip.
