Brilliant mix of materials - I think I can see a foam board/balsa sandwich there! A great way to max-out the advantages of both materials. And I particularly like the partial armin wing with the long under-camber section. Again a great mix of function and design - strong at the wing root, and light and stiff on the extremities. I'm definitely borrowing that idea - great for reducing weight and improving lift - without compromising strength.

As promised I added the pdf to the plans that I used for this project there are some changes to it you'll have to go by my photos to see what I'm talking about the wing ideas came from here http://flitetest.com/articles/ft-simple-soarer-build I adapted that design to make the wing good luck.
Ask me anything and I'll try and help.

I used a Rimfire 370 and a 20amp esc 9x4 prop I just followed the plans but came up with my own wing. The plans wing was weak.

If it had a wing like the ft old fogey but in the same shape as the plans meaning 100percent undercamber do you think that it would fold?

I think so I made the folds at 1 1/8" and divided the ends in half from the original planes to create the under camber

I just had a look at the wing for the old fogey and with a little modding it could work I used the glider wing for my project because I wanted the bottom to be flat made it easier to mount to fuselage.

Sooo many great designs and so little time but I think I'll have to make time for this one. THANKS, for sharing.
