I just purchased a GWS SLOW STICK with a Powerful Brushless 450 880kv Motor, running a 12" Prop! I am in the process of adding Ailerons to the Stock Wing!
My BIG QUESTION is DIHEDRAL!! I have read about many Successful Builds with using the Plastic Stiffener & Carbon Fiber Rods, giving the Wing around 10 Degrees of Positive Dihedral! Many People have claimed that this is a Great Build when using the Ailerons. There are also many people that insist on Straightening the Wing for 0 Dihedral by using ONE thicker piece of Carbon Fiber or aluminum straight across the Leading edge of the Stock Wing! Some even claim that there is little difference in the Performance of the Ailerons when building the Wings with 10 Degrees of Dihedral! Saying that a Straight Wing is a MUST!?!
My Goal is to have this SS Fly with more Control & Performance, and at the same time not forget that it is a SLOW STICK and not an Acrobatic Flyer!
Any Help or Suggestions would be Appropriated!
