S-Tee mod for symmetrical wing

Post by kdc914 »

My intent is to transform an S-Tee kit from relaxing park flyer into a pattern/stunt plane by replacing the standard flat bottomed wing with a zero-dihedral fully symmetrical wing designed and produced by Doug Hart at my request specifically for this experiment. I may also try enlarging the control surfaces to enhance 3d flying characteristics. Here's how that turned out. Thanks, Doug, for the custom cut.

S-Tee mod for symmetrical wing part 2

Now to the fuselage modification. The Hummer wing has significantly less chord than the stock flat bottomed S-Tee wing. Doug said S-Tees tend to be tail heavy anyway so I should mount the Hummer wing at the BACK of the S-Tee wing saddle to help with balance. Therefore, here are my fuse mods for the symmetrical wing.

S-Tee with symmetrical wing: The Final Result

And here she is. The smaller chord Hummer wing is set at the rear of the existing wing saddle to achieve balance and it's STILL a bit nose heavy but once I get her trimmed out, she should be a fun flyer.
