Phase 2 – The Wing:
Here goes! Can’t delay this any longer, after a week and a half of debating which airfoils to use and then having to modify my CNC Cutter to squeeze an extra 50mm of travel out of it to accommodate the wing root of 480mm.
2 meters of 80mm ISO Board blocked out and CNC Table ready to go.
Wing cores and layed out, Wing was cut in 5 sections per side.
Had to make templates and use a hotwire bow to cut the air intake sections of the wing (The 700mm root was to big for the CNC table).
Cut wing cores including air intake section.
Panels jigged up to bore hole for wing joining system.
Plywood panels on cores where removable outer panels join (also to link wing joiner tube to wing skins).
Now to layup the glass wing joiner tubes and prepare the cores for vacuum bagging.
