38" Superfly-Megafly clone

This is a close SF copy built using 6mm depron. I had been experimenting with a KFm4 airfoil with the top step at 50% and the bottom step at 40%..
It has surpassed all my expectations, it will fly hands off upright and inverted for a considerable distance. It has a wide speed range and is very manouverable.
The double KF step has produced a very strong and stiff wing..With its tape covering it will take a lot of abuse

more info and pictures here

google sketchup construction files in post 52 if you use the google sketchup program you can scale this to any wingspan in just a few seconds..below is the lines.skp for sketchup in the zip
