I will definitely post plans if the water trials are successful and once the design is finalised.

Are you asking about the weight? If so, weight in the video is 500grams with a 1250mah. I've also flown it at 550grams with a 2200mah. It balances easily with both. BTW, the paint scheme weighs 50grams!

well, yes and no. What was the thrust to weight ratio?

I do have to say, however, that your model looks great. Post a video on the water, especially if you get the ski to retract and deploy.

Oh ok, at 500g it should be better than 1:1.

That looks really great in the air, I think you captured the lines really well, and it looks like it flies as well as the delta's I've built, nice and docile. I'm excited to see it off of water. I might have to break down and build a plane now, it's been almost half a year.

Thank you Frank. I should get it on the water by the end of the week, but I won't be able to download video until January. I will post some pictures.

Here is some video, flying off grass:

Most of the flight is at about 50% power and never more than 80%, as I was trying a 1250mah battery for the first time.
Very neat. normally I'm not a fan of 'slot jets' but this worked out well. Can't wait to see it running off water.

I have it at 50% of the centreline chord (if you extend the leading and trailing edges to the centreline), which is standard for a delta. This turns out to be 40% of the root chord for this plane.

I don't have the tile software, but I'm sure someone else will help out.

I'm on holiday at the coast at the moment, plenty of water, but a bit windy today.
