Windrider 60 inch Scout Bee

This 60 inch molded EPP Flying Wings is now avialable on Windrider website:
http://www.windrider.com.hk/product.asp?id=165
Same airfoil of Beevolution but scale up to 60 inch, it fly much faster than 48 inch and good for DS!

The "Description' Link on the page goes to the 48" BeeII/volution

Can you provide details of tip/root chords, wing loadings, and AUW? What about kit contents?

Cheers

Roger.

10" from the nose according to this post...my guess is it is more likely at the rear spar slot.
I see one of these in my future but I already see that the servos will have to move outboard for any real speed. I like the spar arrangement. Similar to my go fast wings. I see Ming has fully embraced the arched spar layout.

10" is just behind the ribbon spar. The rear spar is only a couple inches in front of the TE.
The ribbon spar slots are now pre-molded so installing the ribbon is a 10 second operation.
Good job Ming, getting the slots molded in accurately.
The ribbons are bigger than the ones that come on the regular 48" Bee.
The winglets are 3mm thick and larger than standard Bee winglets, (about
the same size as the oversized winglets I make for my own 48" Bees)
The battery bay will take either a standard 4xAAA flat pack in the center, or a long 3S
Lipo crosswise for the powered version. Just cut the molded insert to fill the
remaining space.

All suggestion is welcome, we can amend the tooling on next patch of production.
Designing the logo, how about this?

Sounds great. I'm digging those molded inserts on the Bee2. So you've had your hands on one? Is the thickness of the foil scaled up from the Bee?
Logo looks good Ming. I wouldn't know where to move the servos and still have the balance accurate. Probably better to leave them where they are and leave the experimenting up to the individual.

Existing or future? My Bee2 doesn't have molded ribbon spar inserts, but I'd love to see em.

Unfortunately for me, it's a scaled up Beevo foil. I picked up the Scout to use as a
new powered FPV platform which means it'll be overweight and I'd much prefer the Bee/Bee2
foil for its more versatile speed range with good low speed handling, over the Beevo which is fast, but
can tip stall when flown slowly. A scaled up Bee airfoil would also be thicker, to carry more FPV gear.
My Scout is liable to be pretty much unrecognizable when I'm done with it.

The pre-molded spar slot sounds great but I meant the inserts/covers for the radio gear. I like them far better than coro.

Looking forward to your Franken Bee. I have a flying buddy with a powered Queen Bee that carries a payload, probably a little too big for your needs.
I'll be happy with the BeEvo foil but I was hoping it was going to be a bit thinned.

Thinner? The Beevo is already the thinnest wing on the market.
The Scout's foil is 1 1/2" at the thickest part of the root and 3/4" at the tip.
That's thinner than a 48" WW Raider. Make it much thinner and it gets pitchy
and doesn't turn very well.
