Symmetrical airfoils have the same curvature on their top and bottom surfaces, providing an aerodynamic shape with lower drag than an oval tube. Tear drop in shape, this symmetrical airfoil contributes no lift at zero angle of attack, but will generate lift at a positive angle of attack.
Comprised of carbon fiber braid, our symmetrical streamlined airfoil tube is ideal as a strut or faired structural component for any UAV, model airplane, or any other application that may benefit from a streamlined strut.
This tube is comprised of all braid with a gloss finish. The wall thickness is an average of 0.035", although it is slightly thicker on the sides for greater strength. The inside dimensions of this tube are 0.95" ID for the Minor axis and 2.37" ID for the Major axis (See drawing for more details).
