  • DG400/17 wings

    Cut some cores for my friend Pete A. and will bag them to help him with the replacement of wings on his DG300

    Thought I would share as the wings will be built on a simpler manner with less "concrete" reinforcement...

    Wings should be lighter and bend quite on a scalish way...

    Cores are cut the same way

    core and bed assembled, bed get some tape to avoid gluing them during the bagging process

    Cores in place with peel ply on TE

    Nice work Stephane. Is the LE pre-finished right out of the bag or is it to be trimmed and a LE applied. I can't see well enough to tell on my little screen.

      Mark, the LE on this wing will be trimmed and a wood LE will be applied.
      If you want to have a look at how I do prefinished LE, have a look at my Janus thread and my Ventus 3 Thread. Two layers of cloth on LE plus glass tow when bagging lower surface

      Here we go again

      Spar carving, as done on the Janus but this time only 1/3 of the wings to keep some good flexing and manage an as light as possible wing set

        Looks great! Please, sir, what did you do to keep the core from moving within the shucks while routing/cutting spar slot?
