We are also planning a trip to a local wind tunnel to test our wings. This is for the purpose of correlating our CFD data to wind tunnel data to further our understanding and abilities internally. We're pretty excited! Below is a photo of our 300mm chord unit, we will also be testing our smaller FRS/BRZ wing as well. We'll be sharing the data here as well as some photos and maybe a video?



Thanks,
Eric

I was doing some work with our wing this week, testing out a new application with prototype parts and figured I would grab some weights!

The wing without any mounts on it is 3lbs 1oz.



The wing with similar mounts as the twins is 3lbs 11oz.



Our Japanese distributor also asked us to create an upright assembly for display purposes so I grabbed a quick photo before shipping. There is a decent bit to this mounting system to ensure the trunk does not deform and can handle the load (300 lbs) the rear wing can produce.



Thank you,
Eric
