Flexible Wing Tips
Moyes Delta Gliders have for many years
produced gliders with elliptical wing tips.
The elliptical shape is formed by a flexible
fibreglass extension to the leading edge.
Composite Creations has developed a new wing
tip for the Moyes elliptical tipped gliders.
This new tip has a high Tg. (thermo-softening
temperature) and exceptional
laminate properties that ensure that the tip
does not get a preset bend during use.
The tips are produce on our wrapping machine
using pre-impregnated carbon and s-glass fibres.
They are cured at 120 degrees C. ensuring a Tg. of close to 130 degrees.
Recently we have started producing tips of
varying flexibility to better suit each standard
of glider to which they are fitted
