It is beautiful! Looks like a flying wing with a tail and a wiide lifting body. Not seen often on RC controlled flying wings. I would LOVE more info and pictures. Do you have any flight footage?

I'm not a very talented person when it comes to CAD, so I'm sending a kit off to a friend of mine who'll be drawing plans for me. I can send you a link once they're available if you'd like.

I have a little bit of flight footage- I really need to get more! The one video I've done on it is really a lot of talking, but there's some flying in there.

The Valkyrie! (9 min 22 sec)


I'll include a few videos from a friend of mine who's beta testing for me and has gotten some nice air to air footage.

Valkyrie Maiden Flights (3 min 27 sec)


Air to Air of the Valkryie by Julian (4 min 14 sec)


When your Gopro LCD and Good Battery DIE IN ONE CRASH (4 min 27 sec)


There are a few more pictures and full walkthrough of the design process (Which is still ongoing) in this article: http://flitetest.com/articles/the-va...t-blended-wing

Please do send me the plans when you get them. I work with 3d printers on a fairly regular basis, so if you wanted a mechanism so you could take the wings off, i could probably work on that for you.
