How to counteract propeller torgue ?
I have flown several flying wings, the last one was a speedy one with 800Watt, engine HET 2W-18 and prop 4.75x4.75.
What i noticed is that the faster you fly, the more the plane starts to roll, due to the propeller torgue.
The usual way is to trim this out, but are there more intelligent Ways to solve this fenomenon?
I was thinking that a propeller at the nose Would show a lesser effect, caused by the swirl over the plane ?
Would havng a vertical stab at the end of the fuselage help (instead of having winglets)?

This issue is more a structural problem.. make the wing stiffer and it will vanish. look at the elevons, vertical stabs, and make sure there is no twist in the foil that is not equal on the other panel. This is best done when viewing from the rear.

Dave, this would be good news, as the plane is a depron version.
The wing is stiff, it's ok, but the ailerons have some flex.
I will make them stiffer, and hope for an improvement ?
