2m sports wing

Another one takes to air! 2m span 730g AUW EH1.5/9 section.

Initial impressions are positive, seems quite quick, it rolls well and the flaps slow it down for easier landings. Haven't tried any ballast yet (see the tube sticking out the back).

more details and video here- http://flyingwinggliders.blogspot.co...port-wing.html

Now what's next? how about a 3m electric soaring wing? is there any cure for this madness?

I'd love to Edwin, I'm now struggling to make a decision between 2.5 or 3m. 2.5m is just a bit easier to deal with, but would I regret not going that extra 0.5m?

just a teaser, I will send you the CAD files to your email, I have also a 2.4m version with the transitional airfoils (AG - HT) but I think that is overly complicated the HS520 is showing good performance and the construction will be simpler
