Default Mini Telemaster Aileron Wing Kit???

I've emailed a couple of times to see when it might be available so I've been holding off on modifying my current wing. Anyone know anything about the new wing kit or have any suggestions for modifying the stock wing?

Looking at the solid trailing edge stock, you could simply cut out short chord but long length ailerons, while still leaving some balsa stock for the aileron header. I did that with a Herr Cherokee which flies really well, with a pretty short aileron chord length but long span length. On that plane, I had to fill the header with 1/8" square stock inset, since the trailing edge was fabricated from sheeting ran along the outer surfaces of the wing. The very short (roughly 3/4") aileron chord is actually quite effective, given their long length.

For the torque rods, the TE stock could also be cut away and then capped along the top and bottom with balsa stringers, to provide a channel for the rods. The cutaway portion could then be glued back onto the stringer capping. Since this capped torque rod channel lengthens the wing chord slightly, it allows you to glue a cap strip onto the ailerons at their hinge line and lengthen their chord a slight bit, so that they will be aligned across their trailing edges.

Default Good Idea

That would work. I just need to figure out where to bury the servo(s). I had a plane with a single servo operating both using a bellcrank. Need to find some pics.

you might even be able to use the existing trailing edge stock for ailerons just cut it free From the ribs and add balsa to the ribs for hinging the Te stock back in place. modifying the wing this much should make recovering easy to do, so I'd mount servos in the wing on edge so only the servo arm pokes thru. the procedure i just described is how i put full length ailerons on a skimmer 600 kit. heres a few pictures. stu edit,mount servos to exit the bottom of your wing. i went topside to avoid catching grass belly landing the glider.
