    I don't have access to a CFD package. I played with a demo of one 15 years ago but it was too
    crude to be useful for what we were designing (marine exhaust systems).

    Maule did that to make up for lost aileron area taken by increasing the span of the flaps. It
    looks goofy at first, then you don't notice it so much.I'm trying to define the cascading
    changes needed t...

    Thanks Kevin.

    Do you know what Steve added chord-wise? I'm at the design phase and can do it easily. I was
    really asking if you had considered adding to the chord before the wings were started -- it
    would be pretty...

    Wes,The way Curtis' ailerons were designed the boost doesn't seem like it would happen at all
    until you get a bit of deflection and forces start to build. But I have zero experience with
    the design an...

    Bret,The brake we have is very flexible in terms of being able to create tooling for it. Radius
    bars are easy to make, see below;8842This is a full-length radius bar used the create the weird
    TE profi...

    Bret,Did you consider adding chord to the ailerons? That would increase the chord ratio and
    should gain some roll rate as a result. I am back and forth about doing that on mine.As for the
    apparent dis...

    Bill, It is Stearman extruded trailing edge from dusters and sprayers. It will throw you about
    $100 for 4-6 ft sections but its good stuff. Dusters and Sprayers are good dudes just have to
    call them t...

    No problem, I have seen your original build documents. What's the TE going to be? I haven't
    thought to make mine blunt or anything other than the norm -- a simple "V". In fact I'm not
    sure of the bene...

    Are you documenting the build or just getting on with it? I'm facing a similar build and
    wouldn't mind looking over your shoulder.
