Default Trying to find and old Delta

There used to be a Delta (?) kit on the market and I am trying to find either the plans or the kit. This was made from carbon fiber and ripstop nylon. You bent the carbon fiber in the shape of a horseshoe and glued the nylon over the rod. The whole back end was an elevon. No rudder but it was something like the tail on a Slow Stick. Does anybody know any airplane that matches this description? Thanks

Sounds similar to the Carbon Traveller. The CT can be dissassembled though for travelling. Might be made by the same company though. I dont know! Just a thought.

I still have one in my hangar. They sell em at the AMA show every year. Wildrc.com. They fly on elevons although there is one that also has rudder. A small bell type outrunner and a 750 ma 3s li-po makes em fly pretty good. Although you can't over speed them in a dive or they don't pull out.

Not me personally. But I watched someone at the flying field attempt to fly one of these around. You would think it was really easy but even the slightest bit of wind that we had that particular day was blowing it all around to the point of being uncontrollable.

I bet they are meant more for indoor flying (e.g. gymnasium)

Good Luck
Dave

I still have mine hanging on the wall. Tough indoor flier. Covering doesn't need to be tight. Sort of bags out like a hang glider Does tight aerobatics. Probably one of the first real 3D planes as it's quite happy hovering along at walking speed or just hanging on the prop. Great indoor plane to start out with as it is tough as I say, and really fun relaxing plane. Even has a manual retract
