Scratchbuilt Flying Wing

Hey guys just thought i would share with you all my scratch built Flying wing. i had Zagi a year or so back and sadly lost it so i finally got round to start building myself a new wing.

Pictures below show my current progress, i have cut the wing from foam polystyrene brought from wickes its not the strongest but i have added some carbon fibre strips to strengthen this up.

i have cut ailerons out of balsa wood and covered with glass weave tape to strengthen also.

i have now started to cut out the holes for my servos, battery and radio gear.
once finished i will be covering with Glass Weave tape and a nice bright orange scheme. more pics to follow.

Nice! I'd looked at that foam in the past,as you say not the best.I guess the tape etc will fix that.Wickes sometimes stock pink XPS which is a lot denser.Whats your airfoil?
