Measurement of front wings

Post by olaf » Fri Jan 20, 2017 10:35 am

Hi togehter,

does anyone have the exact measurements of the front wing? Espacially I need the angle of the foils, how much is the angle of the sweepback and how much is the angle of the sweep from buttom up?
Yes I could measure it by myself, but I have no exact instruments. So if anyone has advice or knows where I can find it, I would be happy.

Best regards to you
Olaf

thank you for the link. I already studied that side and there are so many interesting tips.
I think the data in the paper regards to the angle of the wings against the baseline. Or did I read it in wrong way?
I need the sweep back of the wings. Meanwhile I borrowed an instrument from a friend. The angle of sweepback is 137,5° (it is from topview) and if you look from frontview the angle is 162°.
