Club racer wing

#1
This is a wing I designed to get quad pilots in the air. Its super easy to build its got plenty of room in the cockpit. The CG is is the middle of the cockpit. It flies on 3s or 4s I have even tried it on 6s its fast but not super fast the thick KFM4 is draggy. It flies really smooth and locked in its a great first wing for FPV. My current setup is with a runcam split but I have used a non split cam and put a gopro session on it. It flew fine lugging the hd cam.
I am using a 2205 2450kv motor and a 30amp quad esc it flies ok on a 5040 3 blade on 3s I like a 6in 2 blade prop. Most of my flights are with a 3s 2200mah.
I discovered it flies much better but slower with the KF step doubled up. Some of the pics show it with a single layer step the later pics show it with double layers top and bottom.
I am using a separate 3s battery for my fpv Its not my usual way of setting up a FPV system but I didn't have PDB that would output clean power and the weight doesn't seem to be a problem the video feed is awesome on its own battery.
some video from the latest version with the split cam.

This is an awesome little wing, carries a decent payload too. I like the vid, you got some good footage. I liked the low passes and especially the road run. Nice flying space too. Looked like you even did a wing tip touch on the ground and then clipped a tree. Nice work. I might build one. Gonna steal your plans

Here is another build. The cockpit is kind of tall. I made the choice not to cut into the foam and drop the battery into the wing.
This has a racerstar 2508 2500kv it should have plenty of power on 3s.
The gopro is duct tapped to the end of the battery. The fpv is running on a 3s 650mah. The cam osd sensor is plugged into the balance lead of the flight battery.
This setup gives an awesome fpv feed with the cheap 600mw vtx.
I haven't had a chance to fly it yet. Its been super windy and rain is next.

Another version.
This one has a stack of foam glued up and cut out for a cockpit. Its lower profile. The hatch has no sides so there is plenty of airflow to keep stuff cool. It was built to be a rugged basher with no hd cam but I couldn't help myself and duct taped the gopro on the nose.
Probably the fastest version on 3s.
I added some center fins and cut the winglets/drag tips way down. I made a different motor mount thats a little shorter to get the thrust line closer to the center of mass.
Check it out in action here. Im pretty happy with this one.
