A bigger wing

Hi guys, not lazy just not IT literate LoL. Trying to find any thread of slow flying wings. Tried my best but failed !. Can any one put me on the right track. Due to age I would like some thing 48inches or more if possible. Got some 6mm Depron ready to go. Thank you FB3.. Ps how does one look for some thing specific on the forum ? Cheers

I'd suggest looking at http:// www.crashtesthobby.com
Lee has wings from 26-78" that are extremely durable and easy to build. Not sure if thats what you are looking for but hope it helps.

Not sure if you're doing a flat plate simple thing or what, but doing this one below with one engine and battery (instead of two) will get you super slow (very light wing loading). It can pretty much crawl along at walking speed.

The first video is the flight.
The second video is a discussion of the design.

The description/comments in youtube give more detail, but here are the basics specs:

Wing Loading: 7 ounces per square foot
All Up Weight: 41 ounces
Aspect Ratio: 2.4
Span: 45 inches
Chord: 19 inches
Motors: Turnigy D2386/8, 1100 kV
Props: 10 x 4.5

My single goal here was to achieve vertical take-off and transition to horizontal (and controllable) flight.
I also used a piece of foam that just happened to be that exact rectangular dimension. I guess I could add on strakes that go from the plywood tongue to the leading edge to make it prettier - but that's more weight (always trade-offs with this stuff).
Besides, the ugliness factor actually adds to its mystique for me

Also, if you're interested in a traditional, near equilateral triangle delta style, there are probably scores of designs on this site alone, but you can check out my youtube site for the one I did (with a canard for better high alpha):

When I need to find something specific on RC Groups , I do a Google search . For example , I Googled " slow flying wing RC Groups " and this is one of the results I got .

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65870

Here is a video of one of the later posts in that thread .

A better way to search something on rcgroups is like this:
slow flying wing site:rcgroups.com
Then you'll get results only from rcgroups.
