Clipped wing tips


Feb 15, 2005
Reaction score
I have a J-3 seaplane which operated in Canada (I bought from a guy in Sonoma, CA) and has wings clipped with flat plates immediately out board the ailerons. I believe this is different to the Ried modification which, as I understand, takes the 18 inches off at the wing root. No idea what the origins or benefit of this mod are.
