RED* - >3m slope glider for aerobatics and speed

Hi ensemble,

I started a new project ... well I just bought the plate to build the fuselage mould, but day one is set!
The plane should resemble at the one in the second picture.

It still is in the very early stage and all the geometry needs some more computations

It will be developed for a very low coefficient lift, therefore devoted to aerobatics and speed. Plans are to do several version as I am doing with the Foka4 and the Trisel.

Wingspan should ... err ... span from 3m to 3.5m, depend on task.
Airfoils: several :P

At the moment I'm still distracted finishing the Foka4 P2 (acro) and would like to do another one for speed. So this thread could stay a little silent for a while.

Hopes are to be able to start test flights in spring or next summer.

Best regards and merry festivities to all!
Ric
