It sounds like you are off on a project that could prove very useful and interesting.

You could use another pair of servos or a single servo and use a portion of the the foam at one of the steps as spoilers.

Here is the actual dimensions that worked for me on the KFm9.

When tip chord = 0 ?


I'd like to build something this shape, that has a true triangular form (i.e. wing tips coming to a point - not truncated):

Delta RC plane (2 min 1 sec)


For a KFm-2 or KFm-4 wing, where should the step run out at the wing tip where the chord goes to zero?
Can you see any problem running the step from (say) 50% at the root chord all the way out to the pointed tip?

Description:

This works great if that helps. The step ends at the hinge.


Edit: I just watched that video, if you want nice low speed maneuverability build the FT Vector, build it it really light with a light setup. It will have excellent low speed high alpha plodding around capability. It has a low mounted rudder just for that type of flying.

There's a lot of similar designs in the plans list.

I made a couple of KFm puller deltas. The first was from EPP and the second from Depron. Both flew very well being quiet and aerobatic.
