Swissing Your WingEdit

Cutting the holes


Detail of Swiss hole in the wing.

Here are some shots from Steve Lange's first ultralight "Swiss" Le Fish.

You can see that he traced out a series of graduated circles and then carefully cut them out using a sharp knife.

You can argue whether or not this small amount of weight loss will gain you anything in performance; but you have to admit that the swiss holes look cool. Take a look at the slideshow below ... major swissing!
