Davereap's flying wing

Thanks Davereap for something so simple even I can build it in a couple of evenings, and I build at a sub-glacial rate!

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=434265

6mm Depron. LE 'spar' from 6mm dia CF tube split lengthways (didn't have any 4mm tube ). Held together with packing tape, a little UHU POR and hot glue. 10.7oz with GWS 2205, APCe 8x4, 1200mAh 3S1P LiPo, cheap 18A ESC, GWS rec and a couple of 5g servos. Keel reinfoced with fibre tape and 3M77, as is the TE.

Hovers at about 1/2 throttle and wafts around on hardly any throttle!

I built myself one of these last aussie summer. It was a ton of fun, until it landed in a dam. Will be my next build. Love the shape, love the way it flies, EASY to make. All round good fun!!!

Just found out why I had a spare GWS RX. It's because this one is ! Glitch, glitch.....crunch. The fibre reinforced keel was worth the effort though. Nothing a bit of tape and hot glue can't sort out

Hi hangtight

just came across this thread..... I always use the little hitec receivers at about 15 from all's hobbies , the HFS 05MS is really great,light and over 1 mile range, where the others/gws quote 800meters as full fange.
got 4 now , no glitches, no problems
also check out robot birds they are selling 3 versions of the blue motor ive been plugging at 7.95
the 1300Kv version is the one for the estratos and vulcan using 11.1v and a gws8x4 cut to 7x4 (not slowfly props)
they are also selling a 2500 version, (ive just ordered one) which should do for my faster designs

just sent you a pm then found your posts ....dave

ps .. where did you get that nice pretty red prop saver
