Trailing Edge Wing Fences (set of six required):


 

 

Demonstrated to improve the low speed performance of swept canard wings by preventing outspan flow near the trailing edge at high angles of attack. Equally spaced along the trailing edge in sets of three for each wing and aligned with the direction of flight. TE-Fences have the effect of straightening the lift curve at higher angles of attack. This allows slower flight speed while maintaining the same angle of attack.


Shorter takeoff and landing distances can be expected as well as improved climb performance.


Some trimming is required to fit the particular shape of your trailing edge. TE-Fences are held in place with RTV.


An optional flange can be added by applying the same method used for the leading edge vortillons.


These examples were designed for a symmetrical wing section and made from three layers of carbon.
