UMX Timber Mods

#1
I thought I would share the mods I've done for my UMX Timber.
  • 1 strip of clear packing tape along the leading edge to reinforce the wing and a diagonal X brace on top of the fuselage since the wings seem a little weak near the flaps.
  • 3d printed vortex generators in front of the ailerons.
  • Tape on the bottom of the floats since our water is currently frozen. (snow)

I've seen lots of discussion about the vortex generators. Personally I think they make the ailerons more effective at slower speeds. They are space 1/2 inch apart. The location is around the same area that l used on my Mini-Guinea. I determined the best location on the Mini-Guinea base on a rudimentary wind tunnelish device I made.

Hope these mods help someone else's plane last longer. :)
