The first version is looking interesting.I have flown it without paper covering and the second flight it found a good thermal, a "neck breaker".I went on to cover it in tissue paper(photo) and took it out to trim it this a.m.It is now faster, not a floater.Then a servo failed and it ended it's flight some way up a power pylon!....yes I did...well I could hardly leave it there?The flying site here in Chiangmai is surrounded by hazards,and close; a junior school, Tv transmitters houses, pylons....The idea seems to be successful; the add on aerolons delightfully easy to do, and the slightly raised tips acting as wash out due to the crescent shape..At least I think so The added, mixed rudder gives very good turning.I will make larger versions at home where I dont have to carry it on a small motorbike! !
