Hawk Wing 286 delta wing

Air craft name. Hawk Wing 286 has rudder and elevator controls. Its a slop soaring/sail plane and its a flying wing some what like a hang glider. It weighs 4 oz but after doing all of those repairs it weighed close to 7 oz. The longest flight was 2:50 off of a hill.but i cant beat the record because on day it was to windy and it flew away:+C. Here are the you tube videos :+J

Keep up the good work. It look's like it's made from foam sheet with no airfoil but seem's to fly well. Good luck to you.

It's kind of a kite and it's just flat material. Ok I have alot of airfoil's templates and occasionally cut foam wing core's for various model's. Alot of people have been experimenting with airfoils for over 100 year's. I was flying my Discus Launched Glider and it has an airfoil that can make it stay up about 10 time's longer than your flat airfoil. From a launch I can fly completely around a football field in dead air some time's more. I noticed that you know something about slope soaring, so do I. And in the right wind I might stay up for an hour or more, wouldn't you like to be able to do that.

I actually bought it from a friend of mine who scratch built mold's put a good set of wing's on it and the rest is history. We flew today with identical model's except his was 1.5oz's lighter and his flying skill's are a little better than mine so he was able to thermal his about 500ft. higher than me and then did aerobatic's on the way down.I'll enclose a few photo's. My friend just called me to tell me that his post of his new CNC machined aluminum mold's hit over 2000 view's in 2 day's. Ok here's a few photo's of a couple of glider's that we've built.
