high performance fabric wings are designed for the Ornithopter
Gearbox and have a 68 inch wingspan. They are made from
Icarex light weight kite fabric with sewn dacron leading edge
sleeve. The fabric can be lightly airbrushed with Testors
Model Master Acryl. The unbraced design provides a better
airfoil and lighter weight than Spencer-style braced wings.
A thin Kevlar cord can be attached to the leading edge, to
maintain the correct tension on the fabric. The set includes
two wrapped, tapered, hollow carbon fiber wing spars.
Wing & Spars Set (white) - 59.95
tapered carbon fiber wing spars are the same as those sold
with the fabric wing set. Length is 32.5 inches. Weight is
9.0 grams. Tapers from 0.285 inches at the base to 0.220 inches
at the tip. The wrapped carbon tubes are much stronger and
lighter than "pultruded" tubes. They fit on our
machined aluminum servo arm
or the ornithopter gearbox.
