Winglet Mod

Yep, yet another mod, but this one’s pretty minor. My wingtips are the older design that lacked a good place to mount the wingtip light cluster. Therefore, I designed a small winglet to attach to the wingtip, mimicking the design of the newer wingtip seen on the TSi kits. I designed the winglet around the Whelen lights I bought, trying to keep it as sleek as possible and keep down the drag counts. I printed one and it looks good, but will need to contour the base of the winglet – the surface of the composite wingtip is not quite as flat as I hoped.
