Balsa Trailing Edges are a specialised shape popular for Aeromodelling applications where it is used to form the trailing edge of wings.  The principles of Trailing Edges, or Ailerons, haven’t changed for over a century!

Trailing Edges are long Isosceles triangles with one angle at 90 degrees and two other angles that vary depending on the dimensions of the sides. Thickness refers to the shortest side and the height to the longer side.

Our Trailing edges are cut from harder balsa compared to Leading Edges, making them stronger and more durable.

Balsa trailing edge

Balsa arrived broken but after an email and some pics money was refunded and new order placed timber arrived intact but their problem resolve was excellent

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience, Robert. Despite our efforts in making sure the packaging of balsa is robust enough to withstand the rigors of freighting around Australia - we do get the occasional breakage that's out of our control. I'm glad we could resolve this in a positive way for you. Good luck with your project - Peter

Wrong size

Im building the Olympic 2 and the trailing edge I received is too big which was my mistake.
Apart from my stuff up all good.

Hi there Laurie. Thanks for your rating and review - sorry to hear about the size issue with the Trailing Edge. Let us know if we can help further but all the best with your project. - Peter

As expected the ply and balsa arrived promptly beautifully packed/protected with no damage. The quality was perfect for my next project and the pre shaped TE made wing construction easy. Thanks.

Thanks for taking the time to review the Trailing Edges, David. We take a lot of care in the manufacture of this product with timber grain and density being the main focus in balsa selection. All the best! - Peter
