building a flying box

a pretty wild idea

the idea....
1.folded for transportation before flying
2.twin motors for thrust & turn
3.single servo only for up & down
so...stated to build
cheers

My 1st flight instructor said you can fly a sheet of plywood, given enough power.
So it's like a box kite?????
Good lick with it

the folding line of the box is quite convenient as a hinge for the elevator
will do external mixings with a V-mixer between motors later on

After he proves it flies you can make 1 out of foam, paint it brown, and print "Yam Potato Soup" on it.

bad news
crashed because of wrong CG & poor yaw control in the air
good news
good crash-resistance and it can easily run on the ground like a rc car w/o wheels
what's next......
add one more elevator/servo on top(for taking off from the ground),ca glued with packing tapes on bottom(for taxing on the ground) and installed KK board inside the box.
will move cg backward & come back with vid soon
cheers
