Building notes

  • The Leading Edge cutouts are measured from the wingtip, indicated by 0 mm on the plan file
  • The center panel is one piece
  • Before making the cuts in the¬†leading¬†edge, reinforce the¬†dacron¬†on the inside with a short piece of glass fiber tape. Alternative: Using¬†mylar¬†coated dacron (mylar inside)
  • Position of the APA standoff connector on the Lower Spreader: 30 cm from thick end of spar to middle of APA
  • For the UL version: The leading edge tunnels are made of spinnaker nylon instead of dacron.
