Warped wings spell defeat when you're up against Nordic competition. If you're in the mood for a fine A/1 machine, try this all-sheet ship. Jedelsky type construction for tried and true panels. It soars in the lightest lift.
Once learned, all-balsa construction methods are easier and require less building time. Also, all-balsa models are less drain on the budget and they are remarkable warp-resistant. No matter how loyal you are to spars, silk or Jap tissue, if efficiency is desired, then this method should be appealing. One thing is for certain, all-balsa models have been winning their share of contest, especially in Europe.
