Detachable/portable flying wing with true airfoil: your parkflyer in a "backpack"
I have build a little portable/detachable flying wing and I would like to share the design with you.
There is nothing new, but I think that some of you will be interested because it can be transported in "standard" backpack, so you can use your bicycle to go to the flying field or park to fly this small piece of foam !!!
I have built two wings;
The first one is bare depron with a thick airfoil, it only weight 126grs ready to fly (except the battery) and it's powered by a 10 grs motor and 6 amp esc.. With a fresh 460mah 3s (add 45grs) and a 5x5 it goes vertical and it glides forever. I've done more than 50flights and it still flies wonderfully
The second version has a thinner airfoil, its powered by a custom wound cdrom motor (8T 21awg wire) and it's powered by a 4s 1300mah battery and 20amp esc. I'ts really fast (about 80mph) and flies like a dream
Both wings have a center section in which all the electronics are installed. The wing sections and center sections are joined by carbon fiber spars and hold in place by neo magnets. Enough talk!! next images and videos are self-explanatory
