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.

    @Fliegerkerlchen you need wing pieces inside it. This example is a cosmetic component.

    For some reason I never thought of using multiple fuselages on a wing

    @47parzival41 stabilizers can often be simpler, without tapering in thickness. You can apply this technique to them too, of course.
