Model Airplane News - - TIPS&TRICKS - Dan Porter, Wood­bridge, VA

Lat­eral bal­ance is im­por­tant when you are trim­ming your model for straight and level flight. If you need to lat­er­ally bal­ance your foam plane after a wing re­pair, here is an easy trick. Place the cen­ter­line of the re­paired wing on a ver­ti­cal support and place fin­ish­ing nails (6d to 8d “penny”) on the lighter wingtip un­til the wing bal­ances level. Then just push the head­less nails into the wing tip and add a dab of foam filler to fill the hole. A lit­tle paint touchup and you will be ready to fly!
