Wing Design?
I'm in the process of creating a Moc that is approximately 16 in. tall and I was wondering if anyone had a large but stable design for wings. (preferably ones with hydraulics)

Well you could you the same concept as the "Ultimate Dume" combiner set, http://www.bzpower.com/Imaging/stories/ultimatedume02.jpg but instead of using technic beams for the main structure you could use limbs, and attach the blades (feathers) with 3 way connectors (original hand pieces). Then you could just add hydraulics, using a piston, in between the two main limbs! Hope this helps, and isn't too confusing...

Another method is to create an armature of the wings and then attach the thin plastic lego sails to it to mimic the wing membrane like on Cameron G's Wyvern http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/187854

Although the sails are not Bionicle, the bonus is that they are very light in structure. And because of this lightweight design, you can get them fairly big in size.
