Subject: Re: [BugHLG] Unbalanced wing question..Please Help Me
Hope you added the extra ribs to the opposite side too! Just add weight to the lighter wingtip 'til it balances. It shouldn't be much. You don't want to fly with any rudder deflection. It's a drag. -PJ ----- Original Message ----- From: mmmmmcerveza To: BugHLG@yahoogroups.com Sent: Sunday, February 13, 2005 9:02 PM Subject: [BugHLG] Unbalanced wing question..Please Help Me Hello to all.. im building a Bug and i just finished building the wing...the problem is that is unbalanced..left side is heavier than the right side... i added the extra ribs and also extended the boom to the tip in the left wing to be able to side arm launch it..so this is the reason why the left wing is heavier..actually besides extending the bom, i added a little piece of CF rod perpendicular to the extended boom so i can hold it with my fingers... What can i do to solve this?..would this be a big problem?..or can i solve it simply by adding some right rudder?.. thanks..any tips will help Elias Home Page - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BugHLG/ Yahoo!
