I have built 30", 40", 50", and 60" folded wing DLG with out spars with out any failures. The big DLG are a bit tricky to get dialed in but I am still trying.

Good flight, I'm glad you are testing again.

I rebuilt my 1.5m DLG for the third time. Changed tail, shortened tail moment, removed rudder servo, increased dihedral, and changed fuse. It flies great in calm air.

Nic, is that an old video? I thought you were up to a beta 6 or something like that. Regardless that's a pretty good flight. Were you using a launch mode?

It is old. I was looking at old footage and realized I never posted it.

I do have a flight mode set but this was in the early stage of testing, cg isn't even right here.

Hot stuff! I was watching for this! Now it's time to build.
For me this is a great next step from Chuck Glider to powered Flight.

After removing the rudder I seem to get better launches. My micro servo might not be strong enough to handle the launch load very well. Not using any preset.

- Added channel for wing carbon to sit imbedded in bottom wing
- Changed airfoil shape and thickness, now only 11mm thick

Beta plans can be found at http://www.nerdnic.com/beta

Nerdnic what is the root and tip cord length you are using? I increased my root cord on my new build to 7.5" and will see how it flies soon.

Nic, did you ever get a chance to fly the V.6? I'm eagerly awaiting results. BTW, do you think that a 3D printed launch peg is at all possible? I know that there are a lot of guys that use fancy contoured pegs that are supposedly a lot more comfortable, but they're all carbon and a little pricey.

Man your so cool, thank you so much for your effort to share this to everyone. Now this would be a helpful information for all of us we can now build our own design of RC plane. Without costing too much of our money.

I'll measure for you next time I'm in front of my PC. I picked up some spider line to test with also.
