Help! Warp in wing

Post  TDbandit on Thu Dec 11, 2014 10:43 pm

Hi all quick question, i just dug out my old sheet wing sig 1/2A skyray and noticed it had a warp in the wing from sitting. Is there a way in removing the warp? I know how to do it with built up wings but never have tried to do it with a sheet wing. Hope you can help me guys. thanks! (Bandit)

Steam.

I have done that using an iron and an old towel. I suppose you could do it over a pot of boiling water and twist gently.

Let it dry while being weighted down on a flat surface. Others may have more ideas.

Good luck,

Ron

yep, pretty much the same technique, hot steam, twist opposite direction (slightly over) hold till cool...if it's now twisted in other direction, repeat...

I'll try that thanks guys! it's been sitting for a long time (about six years in a dry area) and I've got a feeling the temp changes may have gotten to it. I've got the engine apart "Babe Bee with a stunt tank" and am in the process of cleaning it up.

Btw, I'm fixing to start the build on the Wildcat so I'll have pics up soon. Smile (Bandit)
