Yippee!
Gizmo 36

Hi guys

Finally getting close to the pointy end of a long process. I've alway love blended style wings , and wanted to build a composite one. So after many hand drawings, and hours of day dreaming , I came up with a concept that I liked.
With the help from great friends sean moloney , and Peter wick (airfoils).
We eventually narrowed it down to 3 designs.
With this design , had problem with the blended centre section fighting the wing. Peter done a lot of work to design a foil for the centre that would complement flight. Building an electric is easy , building something that has to fly in all conditions is a challenge. BUT I'm sure we have nailed it.. Ha ha
Hopefully it will fly ?????
Anyway it's been great ride , combining with mates.. Hopefully before Xmas we will be able to see...

Tim

Wow.. That looks cool. How big was it ??? Looks small ??
Like all planks I guess, set up is every thing.

Always loved the wowing's plank , also drongo , bluto etc.
My urge to build a blended plank came years ago when this caught my eye.
Almost did the wh60 this way but for DS blended centre is not ideal for drag.
The gizmo has a weird reflexed centre and a more simetrical wing , as great lift distribution , and stability and doesn't show signs of tip stall.
Due to it's large centre section and genorous tips , It has a wider static margin for the CG , making it easier to CG.
There has been a lot of work put into this to make it right. And I'm sure it will fly amazing....well I guess in a few weeks we will know..
