Quickie Canard Foam Layout


Round up the five 7” x 14” x 41” blue foam blocks. They will have to be “faced” with the hot wire, as shown, to obtain the proper trailing edge sweep.

The center section is made from the three 7” x 14’ x 12” blocks left over from the main wing.

The canard stiffener(20-A-B-C-D-E-23) is made by cutting the appropriate templates and hot wiring the stiffener out of the foam cores. Be careful in handling the stiffener since it will be fragile.

A sketch is also included showing how the vertical fin templates must be laid out using the remains of the foam cores.
