Duct Fan Flying Wing

Hey Folks

I been fooling around with the AIR SURFER glider design and came up with thus.

Wing Area 286 sq. inch about 2 sq. ft.
Weight 110 grams w/o batt.
Wing Loading 3oz. / sq. ft.

Made with depron, carbon rod on leading edge and balsa along center 1/3 of wing. GWS Ductfan, recv. CS-10 servos , speed control, pull-pull with dental floss.

Flyes Great
Glides faster then it's big brother (It's W.L. is around 2 oz./ per sq. ft. SEE FOAMIE THREAD)

Plan on taking it to the fly-in this weekend

That nose bumper is High Density Foam from the packing box of a GWS PICO RECEIVER to help provide some cush.

Hello SPFD-E-FLYER:

The flying wing will look even better with the AeroMicro Nacelle for GWS EDF-50 as shown below. It will also increse the thrust up to 25%.

Hello SPFD:

I 've just finished a flying wing using Simi Air and EDF-50 and you can see that at the following thread.

Flew today

Flew the duct fan in Miami Ok. today .
I was a little disappointed with it's flying. I have some slop in the pull-pull setup and I did not make the string on the servo arm adjustable. I also forgot my computer raido so I switch to my 3-channel hitec. Got it to fly, but was overcontroling it.
Will take out the slack in the line and fly again tuesday.
Hope to have some video soon.

It is about a 2+min movie of me flying the ducted wing in the dome.
Will try to put up the big fan-fold wing soon.
