At the point when the air streaming over the wing can't deliver enough lift to bolster the heaviness of the model, it's known as a "slow down". This can happen if the modeler flies too gradually, or if the wing is at an as well high edge to the approaching wind stream. On the off chance that the wing is at an as well high edge to the approaching wind stream, then it can't stream over the wing appropriately to create lift.

This is the measure of weight per square foot that must be overcome to give lift. It is regularly communicated in ounces per square foot. This determination can be effortlessly computed as takes after: If you know the square crawls of the wing, basically separate by 144 to get square feet. Partition the aggregate weight (in ounces) of the plane by the wing territory (in square feet). This data is important when settling on which plane to work next. Planes with high wing stacking numbers must fly quicker to stay noticeable all around. These are for the most part "execution" planes. Alternately, planes with lower numbers don't require as much air streaming around the wing to keep it flying. Mentors are intended to have low wing stacking in light of the fact that moderate, proficient flight is fancied
