Example: Tapered wing with custom surfaces

How to create this kind of wing:

  • Have the leading edge block taper towards the tip;

  • Adjust the triangle block so that its front side is as tall as the wing should be thick at root and be zero units wide. Rear side should be as tall as the wing tip is thick and as wide as the wing is long;

  • Place front end of the triangle block onto the leading edge block so that it points forward, and align the point with the root;

  • Adjust "run" and "length" of the triangle block to fit the leading edge block;

  • Add custom control surfaces to the rear of the triangle block on rotators;

  • Profit.

I have added another block to the rear of the triangle block to get a smoother airfoil. That is recommended but not mandatory. Fuselage inlets flipped onto their sides are recommended for custom surfaces in order to give you trailing edge sweep by editing inlet angle.

    @TheKraken3 sweep of both leading and trailing edge can be adjusted.

    this'll only work for a triangular wing like this right?

    "Ah dissection of parts, the easiest way to get custom stuff"

    @Starscream wing pieces go inside them. This example only demonstrates cosmetic component. Functional component is logical, I believe. If it is not, you can download one of my planes and dissect it.

    Will these wings produce lift?

    @edensk I'm glad to hear that. I didn't come up with this technique, I just made a tutorial and popularised it. If you need tips on some other stuff you see on my builds, I'm here for you.

    the only way of using this in a wing with dihedral is MultiEdit right?
    Actually, its not a question, just a statement...

    @Mmdben you can find examples of paneled wings on BaconAircraft's and MrSilverWolf's builds.

    @EternalDarkness I meant another method to make a wing to taper in thickness towards the tip.

    @Mmdben I don't get what you're saying. This post literally is my method.

    @Mmdben you mean you want the wing to taper in thickness towards the tip as seen on this example?

    @EternalDarkness what about making a custom wing with different sections thicknesses? do you have a method to do so.like this wing

    Don’t worry, I’m dumb too (Also, I’m retarded) and I always sucked at reading instructions, so you’re not the only one.
