Airthug, yep, I'm well versed in internet usage, however, I doubt Kamron is doing the same as I, ie killing a Saturday evening in the office watching it snow.

Karl, the wing is brand spanking new, I haven't had the chance to fly it yet. The flip tips were just something that caught my eye. I had read the manual, and as you noted, it was lacking in specifics concerning the rib/tension adjustment other than turn correction. I just assumed some North Wing owner had been down this road before.

Considering Wills Wing recommends the same "tension" adjustment method for both the sport and T2, I'll probably try it until I can get further clarification from Kamron.

Thanx for the replies fellers.

Thx for sharing the link Mario.
Maybe using this concept/material for ribs could be a good place to start. The cross-sectional profile of ribs could optimized too.

I have also been wondering about a higher tech, lighter weight material than (heavy) mylar for leading edge inserts.

Good News.
The editor of DeltaMag just responded to my inquiry regarding English subtitles.

Here is his message:

It might take some weeks but we will be trying to do our best to include English subtitles on DeltaMag #2 and others.

Thanks for your interest & mail!
