Default My current project

I am working on a 1.6m version of NASA/Bowers/BSLD/Prandtl-D flying wing.
I got it flying after half a dozen crashes, most of which were CG related.
Still working out the bugs. It needs more roll authority.

I am doing a build blog over on RCgroups.com, called "NASA/Bowers Flying Wing Build Log"
Anyone building/designing Horten-style 'wings might find it interesting.
I am grappling with lots of technical issues.

When I get everything sorted out to my satisfaction, I will post the CNC cut-files.

Default Flight Tests completed, CNC cut files posted

I got the flight testing and tweaking done on the second version.
I had her out on a windy day. She is a good sloper.

She has plenty of roll authority now, good handling characteristics and no spin tendencies.

Aspect ratio 15, wing span 1.6m, motorized version weight 15 oz

Oops, the file size is 4.2M, I can't upload it here. Get it at rcgroups
