I used to yearn to go to Fanno and do Kite Powered Buggying !
Never quite made it ...
Lost the yearn but still have the buggys ! :-)

here are some of my flying wings. At first a model which i had built last year. His name is "Thermikbrett".
And the second, which I'm building is a Horten XII. This was a project of the IG-Horten, which do not exist anymore.

This isn't mine, and although it was quite a while ago, this is one of the most impressive flying wing sailplanes that I have ever flown.
Gene Dees is a great artist, humorist and writer, so this post includes his article on the design, building and flying of the model. This was published in SoarTech 7 - the flying wing edition. http://soartech-aero.com/SoarTech-Online.htm

It's quite fitting that I post here after HerkS as I couldn't have built and designed this model without his help.
Here is Tinamou.
There are two articles I wrote about Tinamou for RCSD available here:
-Tinamou Flying Wing
-Table Top: A Montana Slope Soaring Adventure
Free plans are available upon request.

After numerous requests I've been persuaded to post a pic or two of my retired Komet.
1m ish span,wood and tissue,painted with household emulsion and a coat of mat varnish.
The ariel hides a collar clamped to a J shaped piano wire hooked onto the spar to hold the front half of the top section on.The canopy was pulled plug inside a bottle style,framed in 1/64 ply.
The pointy bit used to be a tad sharper than it is now,no prizes for guessing what happened there.
The rudder was a mod,just to see if I could do it with a torque arm;flew quite well without it.

Here is my Horten Ho229 filmed in Germany at a meeting in Porz. The Horten weighs 19 Kg and is 3.25m wingspan.
I have made lots of models over the years mostly tailless, but with fins and rudders. I cannot resist posting video of the latest the Arado 555
It has fins and rudders and is does not strictly fit the forum description
This plane weighs 35.5Kg and is powered by 6 small turbines I have made each with 3.2Kg thrust

In the Ho229 video the wing started to flutter at 2:47. I don't speak German so I don't know what the announcer was saying. Was the wing flutter part of the flight plan or a surprise?
