Pizza Box Flyer with a twist ( 45 degrees ) ! VIDEO ADDED

Had an idea to make a Pizza Box Flyer with a CORNER of the box out in front instead of a SIDE of the box . Flies extremely well with a very fast roll rate ! I'll post a video as soon as I take one .

LeadFeather , this would have been a great design for your PBF speed contest .

Here's the video

where is the cg? Looks like all the gear is about as far forward as possible.

Nice "out of the pizza box" thinking. Looking forward to the video too. Is there any way to measure the speed of this build?

The CG is about 30% - 40% . I've flown them both with 3s batteries from 1000mah to 2200mah .

Thanks ! I'll make another one with a fast motor and check the speed with the " RC Speedo " doppler app on I Phone .
