Hey guys I'm back and my tornado of a life needs some help.

 

Most of you guys have no idea what I'm talking about. I need help from people who have experience in aeronautics.

 

If you were making a balsa wood glider, what would the recommended taper-ratio be?

 

 

Thanks!

 

I'm construction a balsa-wood glider, and I need info on the taper-ratio because I can't find any other resources that can help me.

Don't worry if you don't get back to me in time, I found that the recommended taper-ratio for commericial airplanes is 0.4.

 

However, a more specifically recommended taper-ratio for balsa gliders would help :)
