Mini Gymallo With Rogallo Wing

Try this. It's sized for 15" wing spars, but scaling up shouldn't be a problem. Note that I adapted it for 15" size based on Black's Little Aircraft Gymallo, which had 24" wing spars. An 18" version should weigh maybe three ounces. A 24" weighs about 6 ounces, with 2S power and 180 brushless motor.
