Building a wing from folded 6mm depron using the Experimental Airlines method, with a few tweaks. Leaving the sub-trailing edge about 8mm thick means the aileron blends in nicely to the overall airfoil.

19mm thick x 190mm total chord giving a 10% section with the max thickness 30% back. 1.5m wingspan in 2 halves joined with a Skyshark P4X 7.5mm spar.

I buy bulk depron from The 20 double sized bulk pack for about $212 delivered makes it $5.30 per standard sized board.

Packing tape is from Officeworks. Packs of 5 colours for under $8

The voice-over was recorded using $50 Plantronics .audio 628 USB headset on an iMac. Big improvement over the iPhone earbud/microphone voice-overs on my earlier videos.
