I'm noticing this now that Im looking into this.

For example the Fun Cub I'm building states that it has

Wingspan: 55 in.
Wing Area: 589 sq. in.
Wing Loading: 9.8 oz./sq. ft.
Fuselage Length: 39 in.
Weight (English): 40 oz.


Now when I measure the wing in real life it's 55x9 which would be 495 sq in. and I would think you would have to subtract the width of the fuselage in the wing area equation.
