Subject: RE: [BugHLG] Unbalanced wing question..Please Help Me
Hi, Sorry for the poor enlisgh, but iám dutch... I’ve build severall bug’s including extended wing version. Maybey the bug will fly straight with a little rudder adjustment, but you don’nt want a unballenst wing. While lanching speeds are very high and compensating will be hard. The differense (besides the cf peg) can accure do to different weight balsa. Yust put different planks of basa (same diameter) on a scale 1,5 mm can differ upp to 5 gram’s. I think its better to ballans the wing using a little lead at the tip. Iff some one got a different idea i’m happey to hear id beceause addin weight issn’t wat you wan’t.

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!
