Regarding Inclined Planes it States "Raised vertically at least 10.0 cm". Does that mean raised 90 degrees from the ground or just 10.0 cm in an upward direction along the Inclined Plane?

An inclined plane must be used to raise an object at least 10.0 cm vertically. The vertical distance is measured at a 90 degree angle and must be at least 10.0 cm. The object does not have to travel at a 90 degree angle but overall must rise 10.0 cm vertically above where it started before the object initiates the next action.

States "lift an object at least 10.0 cm vertically". Does that mean it must be lifted at 90 degrees from the starting point or just moved in an upwards angle at least 10.0 cms?

For the load scored bonus, the tower must be clear of the 29.0 cm diameter circle. Is this during setup only or also during loading (prior to tower failure)?

The Load Scored Bonus is awarded only if the tower is outside of the 29.0 cm diameter circle through the entire testing. If the tower sags inside of the 29.0 cm circle during testing but the bucket remains off the ground and the tower is still outside the 20.0 x 20.0 cm opening on the Test Base, testing will continue until failure occurs as defined in the rules.

May translucent grey-appearing plastic coverings satisfy the requirement for non-transparent, non-white materials?

Yes, as long as the material is not CLEAR and Non-white, the grey color will be acceptable on a Wright Stuff model.

Must the "length of the wing cord" be maintained for the entire width of the colored section in order to get the 10% bonus?

Nothing in the rules establishes that the width equals the chord length. The colored panel must completely go from the front spar to the rear spar, ie the chord. Chord does not refer to the widest point of the wing, just the distance from the front spar to the back. The colored panel just spans the width between two wing ribs as well as the chord length to earn the 10% bonus in Wright Stuff.
