    I was going to ask for the wing specs as well then I read post #7.
    I feel like most wings are just "drawn, test flown, and when it seems to work, call it the next big thing". Don't wanna pick on you, vendors seems to do that too.

    It makes it hard to compare wings without flying them tho - and I love discussing wing design.

    Side note, I also use EPP elevons. Balsa elevons of proper size are annoying to make because they don't exist in elevon stock so you have to cut em yourself.
    I never really had them twist too much even at 200mph. as a matter of fact, on one prototype, i had the carbon spars break (while pulling to max at max speed - yeah, i was testing if it would break hahaha) , but the elevons didn't seem to flex much. I do have LARGE elevons (10 cm wide in the wide area). They're laminated etc (and slightly reinforced for the fixations), but.. yeah its not as bad as it seems.

    Hello Zob,
    I don't mind getting picked on about my wings. My Juggernaut was ment for me and it took off from there. Now, it is cool seeing my wings fly!

    For me, I like to use balsa on larger heavy wings. I have flown and really don't trust EPP elevons for heavy loads. The flutter is crazy. For my wings, it works good.
