    When CG measurements go wrong...

    I thought I would put this video in here as a lesson to all of us to check (and then double check) the CG measurement when designing a new model. This is my 1360mm modified Versa Wing FPV platform and this was supposed to be the triumphant maiden flight. At the time it was carrying a FatShark...

    Duckerons? Decelerons? Split Elevons? Not sure what they're called. This is a 48" EPS hot wire cutout thoroughly taped and sparred. I was able to fit two DOW board/XPS elevons on each wing and used 2 low resolution (200 steps, ugh) turnigy v-tail mixers and two mixes in my Aurora 9 (a DX6 would...

    Slope soaring flying wing or Discus launch flying wing.

    I suspect that you can take your new flying wing design and build it without a motor. To get the center of gravity right and to get some penetration you could keep the larger battery needed for the motor, and even the speed control in order to power your reciever and servos. Perhaps a swappable...

    16" "Dead Simple" Flying Wing w/ VIDEO

    Hey guys, A few days ago, I saw Chrizz's post about a flying wing and thought that it would be a fast and fun build, so I pulled out the paper, pencil, ruler, and calculator and scaled the plans down by hand. It took about four to five hours of easy building. My brother and I are still...
