Coraggio Long Ez – Chapter 20 – Winglets – Stock Winglets (Almost) & Why I sawzalled them off
This is the winglet with the com antenna installed. Notice the two legs of copper foil tape that are soldiered in the middle, one leg to the shield the other to the center conductor of the coax.
Inboard side of the left winglet glassed and peel plied.
Wing trimmed to accept the winglet.
Winglet roughly set into place using a wood stick and ladder to hold the winglet.
The winglet jigged into place, ready to start the four layups which structurally connect wing and winglet.
Structural Layup number one shown curing.
Structural layup number two, after cure and trimmed.
Structural layup number 3, curing.
The final structural layup. Number 4.

Awesome blog Joe,
I am building a Long EZ here in Sweden with a couple of friends and we all really like the blended winglet design! Do you have any plans that you could share with us? Also any other thoughts on the aerodynamic gains from going blended? It looks super cool with or without any gains though 🙂
