A while back I got infatuated with the idea of an improved (lighter, cleaner, simpler) VP-2 wing. When the SolidWorks models were finished a VP friend of mine, Bill Fluhr, decided he wanted to build a set for a VP-2 he's restoring. Last week he brought over a bunch of really nice Doug Fir spar blanks and a couple of sheets of ply. Bill got the fun job of running the vacuum cleaner while I sat on my butt and kept an eye on the machine. We got one spar finished before I trashed the computer (I turned off the main power while it was shutting down). The spar came out great but the computer is smoked. ...I'm waiting for amazon to send me a new hard drive. I don't know what I did but I crashed the dog poop out of it :ermm: The VP-2 Mk2 wing. Solidworks says they'll weigh about 32 pounds a piece (~20 pounds lighter than PtP wings) Everything except the rib corner blocks are cut on the CNC machine Differential ailerons (bellcrank in picture) Proper A/R ailerons with false spars Piano hinges instead of eyebolts, no gap seals required All the little PITA details like strut cutouts on the ribs are pre-cut If the UPS truck brings my new hard drive today I'll finish the wing 'kit' in the next week or so.
