Wing Addiction

For the last few weeks I have been totally engrossed with Flying Wings, and have built at least a dozen.

I have been trying different airfoils, from clarkY to fully symmetrical, and have decided the most stable is the ‘clark’ series.

Have tried different designs, sizes and motor changes, all the way up to an 11″ prop on a 800mm wing.  As I like fast wings, the ideal setup for me is a 2200kv, with a 3s 2200 Lipo – a bit heavy for fast elevation changes, but overall fun if you don’t mind crashing into the ground once a day!

Here is a picture of my latest design – hot cut clarkZ airfoil, from dense thick foam, covered in 5mm laminate them wing tape for color. Driven by a 2200 kv & a 6×4 prop, this is my favorite over all design.

As well, the Videos linked below contain some shots of other wings I have built and crashed.
