This all stipid A blunt on non beveled surface has more effect than a tapered surface. If you bevel both surfaces the flow will be batter (maybe faster too) bunt or non tapered trailing edge move into the air flow quicker and reacts faster. Your choice top or bottom taped makes no sense look at real aircraft, they never taper only one surface.

I thought we were talking about the bevel on the hinge that allows the control surface to move up and down.
Wot, no Depron?

Does that mean you actually understood what he was trying to say BB? I got nothing out of the post. Try again OldSchool.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I was referring to the hinge joint between the body of the plane and the ailerons. You were correct Ian.

Please forgive me if I come across stupid....but I was attempting to understand where,when, and why some control surfaces are beveled. I hope to come out of the fog sooner or later..Chas

Chas, I sure don't think you are stupid bro, and that's a terrible word to use in my opinion. The post was so vague and convoluted I'm not even sure what he was trying to say!

Thanx...I am sometimes hesitant to ask questions for fear of ridicule. One day I will learn to study up on topics before I launch into questions....that way I won't irritate people so much chas

Never feel that way my friend, that's not the way this great forum works 99.9% of the time.

Keep the questions coming, that's how you learn.

Sorry thought he was talking about the trailing edge not the hinge line. MY BAD Sure bevel the bottom if you are using the tape type hinge on the top surface.

Yes I did understand OSF. The bevel taper on the TRAILING EDGE of a flight surface should follow the shape of the aerofoil or be symmetrical to a flat plate or KF aerofoil.

People should not be ridiculed for asking questions no matter how simple (I will not use the word stupid as there are no stupid questions when asked in earnest).
How else do we learn? (well youtube is a good place for learning but it is quicker to ask on the forum). There are always folk that enjoy helping others out with the mysteries of RC.
I would be the first to admit a total lack of understanding of electronics and how they work.
Fortunately for most of us we can buy radio equipment that does all the hard work for us.
When I bought my first programmable radio I was totally baffled by the language and as for doing things on the computer like CAD, I just don`t bother.

Thank you Ian, you make me feel better about asking questions. Members on this forum make this hobby so much fun . I learn from people like you and it makes it even more exciting. When I get my first programmable radio(if I ever get off this Dynam generic) I know I can rely on you and others on this forum for help . Thank you again chas
