Even simpler one with 4 panels only. Good luck for the windwing project :thumb:

That looks really good! I haven’t had the time to play with SP this weekend, but from what I’ve seen IT looks promising 😃

Where I live, it is not easy to get hold of dacron. For a wing like this, could regular ripstop be OK for the leading edge?

No way, on the contrary thick LE must be done from good strong materials and with good workmanship. Wing has no bridle to support it so structure must be strong and stiff.

I’ve found some PU coated polyester canvas I think can fit the bill 😉
