    PA18 wing strut airfoil cross section?

    Hi guys.... Going to 3D print a GoPro Mount for the wing strut.... Anyone know the airfoil? A picture would work too if one is cut up.... I see UV has streamline tubing with cross section diagrams. That would be prefect if I had the section #.

    Attached is what I already have drawn. Just need the airfoil to compete the mount. (Similar mounting idea as Cloudbase Engineering with the strap)

    Thanks,

    Will

    I may.... I'm sure it will take a few versions to get it right.

    Depends on which brand strut it is. There are some different shapes and sizes
