Balsa Wood Triangle Edge Shapes (or Trailing Edges) were firstly, designed for Aeromodellers. As well as modellers, trailing edges are a popular choice for both teachers and students.

Balsa wood is, emphatically, an amazing lightweight timber. In fact, it's the lightest commercial timber in the world! Even though it's classified as a hardwood, balsa is both lightweight and strong.

As a result, the unique combination of strength-to-weight ratio, Balsa Wood Triangle Edge Shapes are perfect for:

  • Remote Controlled (RC) Aeromodelling. 
  • Bridge-building models
  • Design projects
  • Building models
  • Architect models
  • Construction projects 
  • Art projects
  • In fact, just about any school project that requires more unique shapes

Balsa Trailing Edges is 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.
