John's 36" Wing
John built a 36" wing using the blu-core fan fold foam. He oriented the natural folds in the raw foam along the leading edge of the wing to produce a very nice looking airfoil. His original configuration had the motor on the leading edge of the wing. The CG was too far forward, and the flight attempts ended in nose-dives and broken props. Then, he took the utility knife and packing tape to the wing, converted it into a pusher and had better luck.
