Wing design

The wing has a length of 2 meter with a chord of 0.55 meters. Giving a surface area of 1.1 m2

 

The airfoil for the wing is a NACA0014, nicely symmetrical and thick enough to place an aluminum mast inside. The wing is made from XPS foam which is CNC milled by Roberto. Many thanks! Some wooden ribs and a glass fibre skin should make for a nice strong wing.

The whole wing is designed into three sections: lower wing, upper wing and the tail section. This way everything should fit exactly inside the car.

In the tail section a small hobby servo (IP67) is installed so we can adjust a rudder flap which in turn should change the angle of attack of the main wing. Also a counter weight to balance the wing assembly is added.
