Combat Wing Build Log

Have been having so much fun with the gremlins & wings, as fun to fly no stress scratchbuilds, that its time to build wings for Combat.

First they have to be Cheap to make, and take little time to build since the expectation is they will be crashed in short order!

I started looking at A. Newtons site, where he hot cuts wings based on the FT mini wing plan. Well, the LAR principle kicked in as I started copying his template, and it just did not:
Look About Right!

I wanted a wing with the CG easier to meet, based on some ZRM motors I have from an old quad, a 3s 1300 pack and enough reinforcement to keep these wings together for a while….

My template,  when the LAR principle kicked in, has a wing span of 735mm, Root chord of 315, Tip chord of 163 and a sweep of 234mm. All this translates to a calculated CG of 145mm.

More to come as I add motors, corroplast fins, etc!
