Info on wing fences:

Wing fences, also known as boundary layer fences and potential fences are fixed aerodynamic devices attached to aircraft wings. Not to be confused with wingtip fences, wing fences are flat plates fixed to the upper surfaces (and often wrapping around the leading edge) parallel to the airflow. They are often seen on swept-wing aircraft. They obstruct span-wise airflow along the wing, and prevent the entire wing from stalling at once.

Ontario Re: Gws c-47...dc-3 Wing Fences, Spoilerons and Tip Stalls

Hey Simon!
Thought this thread was dead but RC types don't give up easily! Please let me know how the wing fences work!
I've been flying indoors this winter and am still trying to fly scale...planes and speed. I've been able to program deployable spoilerons into my scratch built indoor scale planes and...they do make the plane steadier at slow speed! (decreases the angle of attack at the tip and decreases chances of tip stalling)
I think the idea already popped up in this thread but on my little planes it works! I think it should work on the DC3 also.
I got fed up with the one servo aileron configuration and added a second aileron servo Y-harnessed to a single channel. I'm going to try using two channels for ailerons and programming the TX for a flaperon wing. I have an orange RX in the plane but I can't remember if it's a four or six channel. I'll have to replace it if it's only four. I'll post when I try it! Read the latest're becoming EDF man...EDF powered DC-3?'s tricky enough now!
