I'm looking at plans to build a radio controlled (RC) glider that is launched by rocket boost mainly as a park flyer. I've been given a set of plans for a model that is a dihedral wing (see attached photo), and I am thinking converting it to a polyhedral wing, as I read that polyhedral wings are more stable for people new to flying as I am.
The new wing shape (I haven't drawn it out yet), would have a flat section over the fuselage acting as a partial cover for the rc components, then a 6 degree angle from there to mid point of the wing, and then another 6 degree angle to the tip.
Wing length and total angles/measurements would be the same, as would the airfoil (Which can be seen in the rib segments on the plan). My other option is simply adding the central flat fuselage cover section, and leaving the rest of the wing as is. (One note, the reason for the thinning of the rib sections in the front is that it is a partially built wing, there is a balsa skin over those parts, then the entire wing is coated in a lightweight monokote type material).
Is there any value in making this change to a polyhedral wing, or is it mostly a wasted effort that I shouldn't worry about doing?
