Life span of a wing?


Recommended Posts

My take off runs seem to be getting longer and longer. My first thoughts are my mini plane probably needs some attention, maybe the carb settings are out or it needs a compression test. However, I just worked out how old my wing is, I've been flying my hook 2 wing for 7 years.. I don't fly that much so it only gets light use but how quickly do they degrade? Are my ever lengthening runs more likely down to my old wing than my motor?

Also, I've done an annual service on my mini plane as best I could but I suspect it needs a compression test and possibly a new membrane - that's beyond me, is there anyone around the south who services them?
