Foam flying wing slope glider plans
Hi, I'm going to start cutting out my own flying wing gliders from foam.
Can anyone recomend a good plan to use, and a web site with the plans?

Hello Apolo 1
As you have no e-mail . . .
Do you have a decent printer ?
and download Profili.
It is a free aerofoil plotting program !
Therein you will find all you need - You can even 'design' your own NACA 4-digit sections !

Sorry about that - they keep changing it !
The new URL is as follows:
OK - Have fun !

Thats what I was looking for, thanks fregon.
Will start production soon now that i have found a supply of nichrome
Anyone else experimented with other wing designs? or is the zagi the best?

I visited the website in the link above - that's a great site - I would never have thought of scanning the wing ! - So
I'm going to draw up a 'Zagi' copy now on a large sheet of paper.
Then I'll decide whether or not to try foam or get balsa-bashing !
I know that the servos are in the wings for the elevons, but where does the Rx & nicad live in the glider version ?
Thinking of a Speed400 powered version too ! Hehehe !

Zagi's arent that good from my own experience of flying one. Quiet and Electric flight international recently featured free plans of a falcon and mini falcon flying wing built out of foam. you might want to try one of them, i plan on making one. The full size falcon is huge.

Hi Jason, nice looking wing you got there. I'm building my first flying wing too,
these wings need to be right on to fly true. They are not as forgiving as a conventional fuselage plane. Here are some sites that might help with your
This site here is good for figuring out the CG of swept back flying wings.
The flying wing forum at RC Groups is great place to get plans and to learn
about building them.
Don't give up on your new wing, dail it in till you get the CG right.
Your wing might need some vertical stabs on the outer tips, winglets.
When building your new flying wing chose the right airfoil and Geometric
Gotta go build something.
See ya, Al.

Here's a nice flying wing build thread for you from daydreamer. This one's been in the rc groups forum for years. Take a look to see if you like it, I'm going to try
one, and put my Horten HOIII design on hold. I need to learn more about airfoils and washout.
Here you go: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=316871
Fly'em if ya gottem, Al.. another: IFO nut
