Scratch built Mini Plank Slope Soarer

My first true slope plank. Took a while to dial in the CG and it's touchy compared to my other wings. But it's compact to carry and can fly nice and tight for smaller slopes. Great fun to fly and fast for it's size and weight.

Specs: Hot wire cut styro foam, PW51 airfoil 7" root & 5.5" tip, laminate and tape covering, 800mm wingspan, 200 gram AUW. Yet to try with additional ballast.


The video starts off in 8 knots, then 15 knots on a different slope. At the current weight, 10-14 knots on a high lift slope is perfect.
