Full length ailerons alingment

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi all
I have a 40 size tapered wing with washout and full length ailerons, when setting up ailerons do I align them with the wing tips or root.
This wing was given to me, no manual and the plans don't show it.

Wing tips.
Insure the wash-out is equal.

Re: Full length ailerons alingment

Personally I would carve a set of ailerons that stay in line with the washout.

Re: Full length ailerons alingment

The way I look at it, your choices are;

1) Align with the wing tip, it looks better than aligning with the root. Aerodynamically, I don't think it would really make too much of a difference if you aligned with the root.

2) carve or warp the ailerons to match the washout.

3) If it isn't a scale airplane, cut the tips and glue them to the aileron then align with the root.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but two Wrights will make an airplane.
