Default Looking for first flyng wing to learn on

I am looking for an inexpensive first flying wing. I have a few motors, ESP, servos to put a plane togather. I dont want a realy fast first wing, just a fun flying wing to learn on. It looks like the Wild Wing is out of the picture. So what are my options?

I learned on the Hyperflea and can recommend anything in their line. This are almost indestructible. I have crashed my so many times that should should be nothing left and yet it still looks good and still flies. Can't go wrong with the Superfly.

Check out all the threads on scratchbuilt deltas and wings around wattflyer.
Some interesting ideas out there. And if you are the type that likes to build and experiment, then there are very inexpensive and quick builds out there in this category of flying model.

Here are 2 pictures of a Thanksgiving weekend project I completed from Step 1 Hot Wire cutting of wing cores to near completion.

Like you, I had the ESC, motor and servos homeless from past projects.

Good Luck..

this is a nice little flying wing, with a brush motor, to learn on, very very strong, then later you can take it to the Dark side with a Brushless motor
