No rudder, yank and bank. The whole tail wing pivots, so this thing should do a loop in its own shadow. The boss said he wanted creativity so who am I to disappoint.
Great :D

I just set up my Bixler with 20º throw on elevator up - it's gonna be a jumpy ride :p

Just because its 'bank and yank' still means you need adequate fin area - in fact you need it even more.
With its current proportions I fear you may find it tends to 'spiral in' very readily. :(

More tail fin is now in the plans, thanks to all who gave input. Although spiraling in may give me an advantage in a STOL "landing", not much roll after :)

Bah... take a break with a build. Slap something together. I'll make sure it wins, just to keep one of these other two from winning.

So it's come to this? Promising victory just for entering? Sheesh, Talk about abuse of POWER! Did Chad bring you onboard straight out of prison or was it a gang reform group? lol
