  • WTB: 4-Place A Model Wingtips

    I'm looking for a pair of wingtips to mate up with the 4-place QB (A-Model) kit I recently secured. Anyone have a pair they'd be willing to sell?
    Alternatively, I see that TQ Fiberglass is mentioned at http://www.mybearhawk.com/supplier.html as the supplier of choice. Is that the best option if I end up needing to purchase new?

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi David,

    Your best bet for the wingtips is Bob Barrows himself

      Don't know if you have found wing tips or not but TQ Fiberglass is your best bet. I damaged a wing tip and call Bob who told me to call TQ. These people do great work. Their background if fiberglass bodies for race cars

        Thanks Eric and Sebastian. I am putting together a list of questions for Bob and will include this. Much appreciated!

          I bought mine from TQ maybe a year ago, they look great.

            I have a set I’m not going to use, I’ll also throw in the drawings for the wood ribs since I don’t have access to the laser cutter anymore. Email schu@schu.net

                Rob Caldwell recently used a Hoerner wing tip, but I don't see a supplier listed on his video. BTW, I'm curious of real life effects on performance.

                  Rob's are from Carbon Concepts in AK, but they are for the "B" model. Most of us building our own tips are also extending the wing some. For instance mine are 15" wide versus about 8" for the TQ tips, that may matter more than the shape of the tips, although all indications are the Hoerner shape makes the effective wing length greater and helps tame the wing tip vorticies.
