Planning To Build The Nieuport 24

#81
Ok so one way to deal with this is to use a 3 or 4 foot straight edge, and some quick math then mark the center on the wing. I have printed two different sets of FT plans and it actually makes separates it into pages then you tape/glue it back together and go off of that, just look for the plans marked "Tiled" those are the right ones.
got it, that is a big help, thank you.

here is the rear of the Nieuport 24. Had to place it on the big freezer. It too is waiting on electronics, engine, servos, battery. Let me know what you think. @DamoRC @Chuppster @Hai-Lee
It would be really helpful to get the weight of the bird. by the looks of things, you'll need a massive motor to get it up to enough speed to even get off the ground. I'm thinking at least 1000 watts, something along these lines on 6s:

the Nieuport main wing is super skinny, while the secondary wing is super fat. weird. See below.
Actually, this is something I fell for too. The bottom wing is thinner than the top wing, but the bottom wing is the only one with dihedral, so it only looks fatter. I don't know if this is too late, but I just wanted you to know.

well first try is too late, after that test build is checked by trying to fly it, then next build I will follow this. thanks.
