so yes i have decided to make a shifty fully airfoiled. i started with the basic template i have been using to make my wings. so i sat there for a good hour trying to figure out how i am goin to get an airfoiled wing out of this. did my research online and found zaginutz website.

i read thru the whole site for ideas and yes i found what i was looking for.

first. i took the paper off of the foam by using a rod, teared and lifted the corner of the 20x30 sheet. i did this both sides.

then i traced the wing onto the peeled foam board, i left 2" all the way around except the leading edge of the wing.

i beveled the leading edge of the peeled foam wing, 45degrees

to make the airfoil . i cut a strip of regular foam
length 18"
one side height is 3/4 and the other 1/4in

and i followed the same technique they used in zaginutz

after that strip is glued. i started to glue the top wing .keeping the leading edge flush .

repeat same procedure on other wing.

cut the the middle excess peeled foam even with bottom wing

now added the spar

now its time to make the aifoil shape. first , i made sure that both halves are glued together. then i wanted to make sure both side are even shape . after thats done i started gluing everything in place.

so this time its time to take a trip to the store.

fast cat

this should be light enough to use a standard bw 1500 kv with an 8x4.3 prop
4 servos tg9e's with a 3cell lipo

just sitting pretty in the garage for a rainy day , not really in a rush to finish it and fly it.

dollar tree foam board 44 tensor

this took about 7 sheets of foam boards. im gonna put an eflite 480 1020kv motor with efilte 40a esc , 4 parkzone servos i salvaged from my typhoon 2, i think i will be running 12x3.8 apc prop

i still need to put the electronics together and get a couple of props and a prop collet for the motor

just got an idea.. why dont we strap an edf 54mm on shifty wing? and also put an airfoil on it...

so i strapped my old phaser3 fantom edf unit about a month on my version 2. it was an awesome flier, took a hard landing and the fan came right off.

so i was bored last nite and still have half of a box for readi board foam sitting there. i decided to revisit the wing and build a new one

this will be my version 3


its 90% done, just need to put control horns in and cf control rods
