I've got a low wing peanut that has a wing warped slightly the wrong way. I would rather that it was warped slightly the right way and stay that way. I can probably figure something out, but maybe someone has a solution with all the bugs already worked out? Partly it's how to hold the leading edge of the wing without putting dents in unsupported tissue.

Make a storage jig that is wider than the wing. This one is for my Embryo. I got the angles right, and glued on sanded pieces of wood for washout etc. run the rubber bands over any sheeting, or over ribs. It seems to work fine. It all fits in the box with the rest of the airplane, blast tube and other parts.

Jigs are excellent uses of wood that is just too heavy for an airplane.
