RC10 wing wire bending

stock RC10 wing wire had .062" diameter. but yokomo put .078" wires in japanese version RC10 kits. I tried both and .078" was better to me. towerhobbies sells 36" wires. you can make 3 wing wires from 1 piano wire 

the left one was from Yokomo, and the right is stock RC10 wing wire
and I can barely see the new wire in front of the ruler. it's 12" = 30.5cm

put the 1st mark on the center of 12" wing wire. and add 2 more 1" from the center

then bend it

almost done

decide the height of the wing

slightly bent the legs(?). then the wing tubes hold the wire securely
