It's not exactly a 'Fixed wing' - but it will be electric :)

Was looking back at some of the older Tom Stanton YouTube videos and thought, "That looks fun!". So I'm have ordered one of these...

..and will be building my own Prop/Gondola thingy to power it. Planning on both the standard two servos to operate the left/right chute brakes and also to incorporate a weight shift of the battery bay for more subtle control (via the rudder channel)
Apart from two medium torque servos I have all the electronics so should not be too long a build.
Wish me luck!!!

Cool! Fly by knitting needle. 😁

Whole new system to learn. Keep amazing us kiddo. Someone should point Chad Kapper or Drew Camden your way as they are looking for active and engaging female role models.

Oh man...Our club president bought one and has been flying it around our field. It's REALLY cool to see, and I thought about getting one - until I heard the price it ran him for a SMALL one, and the larger paramotors were easily 4 figures. Needless to say, it will be some time before I can afford that.

£22 for the wing and the rest I will build myself!
