Looking for SMALLEST flying wing

I am looking for the smallest combat style wings, I have a Pocket combat wing but would like something much smaller, mbay paper motor powered. can someone please tell me where to look for this... I don't have much knowledge of wing loading and wing design to make my own.. but If I saw some plans or something I could do it. the pocket combat wing is pretty cool but I want mini mini mini.

Thanks all you guys are AWESOME!!!!

If you're not looking to actually fly it combat, do a search for AZ Chuck's Wing Thing. Free plans - great flying wing - powered by GWS motor.

Here's a link to a thread with a picture of what you're talking about, but it is FF. It weighs 16 grams w/ motor & battery, so you would carry another 4 or 5 grams to make it R/C. To fly indoors. like in a living room, it has to be very light so it doesn't have to move as fast to stay airborne. You might try something like this.

I am affraid of using the photo copier. I know Ican use it to scale it down as far as I want but I think there is a practical limit based on the RC equipment that is out..

I want to know what the wingspan should be If I scaled down the plans to use a pager motor

Just go by the wing loading. A pager plane should probably weigh 15g or less. You can make quite small wingspan std models so a flying wing which is all wing may go smaller, sub 10" certainly.

Also even if it doesn't work you have only lost pence in materials, you then just build a slightly bigger one.

Look at the working pager thread, get a feel for wing areas, motors, gear ratios and equipment. Make a simple hotwire cutter (see index of inside story in index thread or search) then make one!!! You can do it!!! Seize the day, what have you to loose? Basically to answer your question no one is making REALLY small deltas as far as I know.

CHANGE THAT!!!

I tried once to make a slow flying wing like that and i think i got the airfoil wrong and it wouldnt fly right so i turned it into a canard and its great!
