Slope Soaring homage to 'thenated0g'

Some progress this afternoon to cut the slots in the sidewalls of the fuse to allow the control arms from the wing through to the rotor mechanism - I also added the new CF tubes to provide the correct pivoting point for the wings - the next step will be to glue in the rotor mechanism and servo mounts! :D

The 3D printed wings weigh 300g, the fuse weighs 150g, and the total weight (no CG balance weight) with tail and servos is around 625g.

yeah if you do have controls in the back you could also try out wingeron which is ailerons only on wings and elevator in back and i would assume (but havent looked up) that you could do some kind of flap setup still. Thats one of the big big negatives of pitcheron setups is you have zero flaps or spoilers for landing in tight spots.
