SZD PIRAT

Post by barrieburton34 » 07 Aug 2019, 16:50

I have aquired 1/4 scale fibreglass fuselage of the Pirat,plus a very,very faded plan.The fus only weighs in at 2 lbs(about a kilo for the younger members).The drawing seems to show a Clark Y wing section.I am going to electrify it(shock,horror).Any thought on a suitable wing section?I would like it to fly in a scale like manner

try profile HQ32## for scale behavior. The ## to suit the wing thickness in %% to suit the fuse wing stub. Suggest 14% at the root and 12% at the tip
One of the forum members just finished his ASW15 from my design at fly's very well with the same suggested profile.

Thank you jillies just seen your reply,I will see what it looks like.14% at root seems about for blending in with the fuz.

If you look at my build thread of the Pirat you will see lots of helpful information and several pictures of the wing section. Mine was built from the Tony Slocumbe plan. It flies in a very stately manner and will stay up in light lift off the slope. I just love the shape of the Pirat and it looks great in the air.
