The N23RR adventure begins!!!

Recommended Posts

Not sure why my reply did not post, anyway..... here is attempt #2.

 

yarp, fast mover does have wing cuffs as per the original builder. I haven't read any issues regarding unusual flight characteristics in the logs.  From what I have read on TF fences, the biggest benefit is during slow flight.  They help direct air flow over the ailerons providing a little more authority on landing.

I've seen some absolutely huge ones on a variety of LongEz's, so I was looking at more designs for the ones on Vari's. 
 

cheers

Klaus Savier (who first put wing fences on an EZ) wrote an article about them.  It must have been in the CSA newsletter?  My memory is his fences were pretty small.

Here is what I did on my VariEze.  In the time since this picture I've replaced them with white plastic.

Thank you!

pics like this are exactly what I was looking for. I was planning on using 1.5 mm carbon fiber sheets for my initial set. Would you by chance have the detentions of yours?

thank you again for replying to my question.

cheers

For the dimensions I would have to take some measurements on the weekend when I'm at the hangar.  But I don't think they are critical.

Here is what Klaus did.

Here's a Long-EZ example that's nice but fairly labor-intensive.

Looking into seat cushion options for the fast mover. Kinda wonder if the standard  pads offered by Oregon aero are worth a look.
