Nano Spec Micro DLG 42"

Here is a DLG I have been working on for the last 2 months. Did some test flights this morning on the first prototype and I'm very happy with the results. Fly's quite nice. I'll try to get some video up. It's a full house DLG. Here are the specs.

Span = 42"
Area = 221.18
AIRFOILS - ag46ct and ag47ct

that looks really cool - very lightweight looking construction - are there any spars in the wing?

No Spar. But I will add uni if I make more. Just 1k rapped around the leading edge in a tapered fashion.

Yeah, It fly's much better then I thought it would. I think I hit all the numbers just right on this one. Surface area of wing and tails. The construction method. It's not too fragile either. The wing is just right. Didn't make the wing tips too small as in past mistakes..

The pod is an older universal pod I designed a long time ago, but am working on a new pod. Since I'm happy with the numbers I can make a nice custom pod for it. That will be my attempt for this month.

It will probably fit in almost any car without having to remove the wings.

No wing mold was used yet. I cnc machined the cores out of pink foam. I would like to make a wing molds. I bought a lot of MDF and might make wing plugs with it..
