Hmm now that could be fun off a small slope, they seem very light (1.4oz) for a 600mm span!

I showed my friend this thread, and we decided thats exactally what we're gonna do. We will each get the 24" EPP glider and use 2 HS-55s and a Berg reciever. I considered rudder/elevator, but to combat I need aileron control. How could I get aileron control when I have the bihedrial in the way? I considered putting some sort of flex wire torque rod deal or just straight torque rods with a dihedrial wing. Either way, It will have a spar in the fuse, and a spar in the wing.

Didn't your trinity have ailerons? Wasn't it polydedral? yes and yes.

I say you do a 4 servo wing with some little D47 5 gram servos...that polyhedral is probably GREAT for recoverability, and crow on a 7 ounce plane would be fun

To be honest this sounds like alot of fun. They wont be too stiff or fast, but they are probably much mroe durable than anything else we play with. Much more toyish that your average wing.
