And it's ready for a test flight...

So I got the edge reinforcements on, added some colored tape to the bottom of the wing for in flight visibility and I think this ready for a flight test.

I got the last BB 33 I built out of the rafters, the BB 33 built with a full length monobloc fuselage and tried the wing on that and it looked like a go.

Got a receiver in the plane got all the servos tested, the venerable old Tower Pro 2410-21 is still running fine and churning out 100-120 Watts or so on a 1100 mAh 4S A123 pack, so we're ready for a test flight.

If the winds we are getting ever back off a little bit...

The wing weighed 115 grams/4.1 oz. as you see it here, the AUW of the plane with a the 4S A123 pack is 585 grams/20.6 oz. The wing has an area of 240 sq.in. and will be flying at about 12.4 oz./sq.ft.

We'll follow up with a report on how it goes.
