Windlord flying wing


I am thinking about building a WIndlord from the Skybench Aerotech partial kit (http://www.skybench.com/index.html?h....com/home.html).

I would launch it on a winch for flat field thermal flying. Can anyone who has flown one tell me how well it launches on a winch? What is the wing area and wing loading. It looks like it should thermal well in light wind.

Does anyone have a kit and plans they never got around to using?

Thanks.

Jack

I've had one for 30+ years......
I have two releasable tow hooks on either wings, in front of the CG.
I can take pics if interested and it launches VERY, VERY well.
TD's even better........
Typical white with orange trim!!!
Have fun...
