The Slasher

sorry if the name has been used by someone else i maiden my smallest flying wing yesterday after the first launch i knew it was going to be tricky being 17 inch wing span and using a 5 inch prop u get the picture the maiden went well i used styrofoam for the first model and extruded foam similar to depron in a 50mm/2 inch sheet for the later models using my hotwire cutter i knocked it out in no time the components are as follows the motor mount i used in the pic/video has shown a flaw so i am going to redesign the motor mount
10gram brushless motor,2x 9 gram servos, 18A ESC, 500mah 2S lipo, park size receiver and a 5x3 GWS prop the all up weight came in at 147grams
heres a video and some pictures

Looks like a neat lil' wing, but a bit on the porky side. With the right gear you could get it down to 100 grams or less, then............watchout for the 'Slasher'.
