built up wing

hi guys

I'm looking for DXF/DWG plans for a flying wing. a mate of mine just acquired a laser cutting machine so I thought I'd treat myself to a new built up wing.

is there a depository where I can find plans?

thanks

Which style of wing would you like to build?

thanks guys,

I did try google but all I got was pdf files. which are useless for a laser cutting machine and the odd DXF file that I found was of older type wings.

currently I'm flying a FT versa wing - which is cheap enough to learn on - since I've never flown a wing before only standard aircraft.

ultimately I want to do FPV with the wing - so it must have good lift an glide capabilities.

There are apps that convert PDF to DXF/DWG that might help.

tried some but most are online stuff with limited use. have not found any free down loadable ones yet.

the one that did work (for 7 days) - just converted the pdf lines to surfaces which I had to go and trace over to get back to lines & arcs. very time consuming
