Hello chaps,

Firstly your channel rocks; it's so useful and funny.

I have been wanting to build an EDF WIG for ages but haven't got the time at the moment. I recon it would be a fun project for you two and david to build and fly (or is that sail)..... ....I wonder what it would be like in FPV.... ....with wheels for takeoff landing.

A fascinating machine. Not as easy as you would think. I tries building one several years ago ( before the advent of affordable gyros) I was not successful.

I built a erm.... ...glider out of foam-board (gota love foam-board), worked well until it hit a wall :p

This chap explains it well;
