Birdwing - A 12:1 Semi Scale Flying Wing

Not sure if this scaled butterfly fit into scale forum .....

This project was intended to investigate the flying envelop of a 60" flying wing for SSDC 2007 design contest . Design goals --> all around flying wing for light wind slope soaring and flat land thermal.

Wing planform is borrowed from Rajah Brooke's Birdwing Butterfly. Airfoil used is Pete Wick's PW1211's for F3K plank.

Detail Build log can be found in slope forum.

Hope you enjoy
