Chapter 19 Wing trailing edge


Recommended Posts

Getting ready to start the wings on my Long-EZ. I have seen many older posts in various places over the years where people are using an aluminum angle, I-Beam, or rectangular tubing to get their trailing edges flat and straight. I have looked at the jigs, templates, and plans and it would appear that the Long-EZ wing trailing edge goes from WL 17.5 at BL 23 to WL 16.95 at BL 55.5 and then back up to WL 18.35 at BL 157.

I can't see how you could use one aluminum angle on the trailing edge since it appears that trailing edge is not straight from the fuselage to the wing tip.

I sure would appreciate feedback on this.

Thanks in advance.

What you are seeing is the kick in the trailing edge to keep the Long EZ area where the cowling mates the same as the VariEZ so that the cowls were compatible. If you are going to make your own cowlings I would suggest you keep the tailing edge straight. Using the inboard template for hot wiring the wing cores from the Eracer plans should do it. You could also adjust the Long EZ template by making it longer.
