Calculating Wing load

Recommended Posts

Wing Loading? Twice the weight will raise stall speed by 25%. As rough rule of thumb, adding a pound of weight to an average 6ft span model will raise stall speed by about two mph. When stall speed equals max speed, you have a static display model, or something to practise high speed taxying with!
