Just experiment with the numbers, and you will see... :)Me, however, use tubes for the wings and stabs

WHile I differ on your perception of lack of documentation on the wing wizard, I do suggest that you consider using tubes for your wings, rather than the wizard.Typically, I'll start with just a basic - one section tube to get the "rough" shape, and then start adding cross sections where needed.

In my first FSDS project I tried the wizard but did not like the way the wings appeared as flat sheets in the perspective view. I did them over using tubes. Now, it seems that tubes can be used for almost every part of the plane. The other objects are too limited.John Woodward
