Folded Club Racer wing

#1
This is the folded version of my KFM4 Club Racer wing.

I use a combination of techniques to convince a flat sheet of foam to become a wing. I have watched a bunch of Experimental airlines videos and tons of Flight test build videos. The arrow shaft spar and ribs used here work well in my other wings. My design process and with Sketch up and my build technique is explained pretty well in this thread.

My design goals for this plane are simple build, easy to cut out, big cockpit, strong enough for 6s power, and completely covered in tape(its getting snowy here)
I will post the plans.

Im planing on adding a cockpit/body on this plane. I think I need to build another one to run with a spec wing power setup without the draggy body.

Here are the templates for the wing panel, airfoil, and body of this plane. on my build the center section is 6 inches wide.
The wing template is half of a wing panel. I cut out a piece that matches the dimensions, trace it, then flip it and trace for the other half.
I cut out a few extra big wing ribs to cut up for floor supports. I doubled up the floor with 2 layers of foam and used a lot of hot glue. The result is a nice strong stiff wing, a little on the heavy side but I am building this to handle a 6s power set up.
