Not so new plane, finally found a name
I've been flying various permutations of this design for over a year now. It started out as a Tabooish, got a big dose of Phil Pearson, and has morphed along the way into it's own thing.
I've struggled for a name, (thought about Viagra, because it stays up), but was worried I'd get a certified letter from some lawyers. Finally a friend who has one suggested "VIXEN". It's got suitable connotations for a playful girl with nice curves, so Vixen it is.
I have a day job that pays more than building airplanes, so this will remain a hobby gone bad. I love building and tweaking, there will be planes available from time to time, but I don't take orders or have a waiting list, so don't bug me.
I encourage all you builders and would be builders to get your gloves dirty, the journey is a blast, the information is here on RCGroups, go for it.
Thanks to all who have helped along the way.
Here are some pix, in the random order that RCGroups uploaded them for me:

Travel wing how-to
Can you elaborate on your travel wing mechanism? How do you keep the wing from flying off on launch?

check this thread http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...take+part+wing details are there. Scotch tape holds it together. It takes just a few minutes to set up, but worked great on my trip out west.
I had guidance from Red Weston on the two piece wing, it was his suggestion to do the diagonal cut. I've seen pictures of your work, you can make your own
