I hated watching that video.....not because of the carnage but because of all the fun I missed.

Fighting woodpecker

Here is my combat bird for 2019: an aggressive green woodpecker. I chose this bird because of the low aspect ratio and the forward swept wing.
It flies very well. Great tracking, Very agile. Capable of extremely tight turns. KFm 2 airfoil.

Nice bird! Do you have any plans, or at least an outline and some dimensions?
Motor and prop? Just elevon control?

What advantage to you see with a swept FORWARD wing? Does it turn more tightly?

How does sweeping a wing forward impact required center of gravity?

KungFu bird

Yes, the woodpecker is a KungFu variation. Just take the KungFu plans and modify them to the bird shape. It's 310g, 70cm, 50g motor with 1400kV, 7x6 Prop and 1250mAh battery. Elevon control. The forward swept wing is great for stability in very tight turns. CG must be well forward.
We will have some bird combat next year. Hilmar, stephanbre and Peter are preparing fighting birds.
Here is Hilmar's raven:

It will be a free download plan on

always been the case that sizes have limits for upload

maybe the sizes have been modified ?

if so, nothing to prevent uploading images to a google drive or file share site and link the url

Thanks Scruffy, but no I haven't changed the way I've always posted pics. After multiple attempts of the same pics I'm trying to post it will allow one or two to post eventually.
