I was kidding haha my design was for an FPV model, not a DS model so you could fit lots of gear inside the fuse. This is how they turned out as I couldn't be bothered moving the posts on the CNC:

Mock up of my two designs.

Please not that the tails are NOT what I am using. Just used to give a better idea of layout

They are both in need of names

I like the wing shape. What is the span?
Looking very good.
Sorry, no idea what to call it. Maybe Kandoo and Wildoo.

Has been unusually quiet on the wind front here the last week or so, and is forecast to be a little quiet the next week or so as well...

Hoping it is building up for a big one!

Anything lol But best is ailerons, flaps and elevator. Rudders tend to flutter on fast models, fine for lower speeds, but when do you use rudders on a fast model with ailerons??

Best learning models are a foam chevron wing or JW foamie. Or else a 3m full house F3B model in light air is very easy to learn with for those with a fair bit of saiplane experience
