Fiberglass version


Dsing the fiberglass version for the first time.
Loaded to 750 gram or 27 ounce.
After redusing the aileron throw it was nice to fly, and pretty fast.

The windirection was a bit off the slope, and the backside was very turbolent.
But it will get better tomorrow.

SD, have fun man, keep it up! Try a fin that goes back further, it will really help smooth out the plane and get rid of those little wobbles. Trust me!

Yeah...perhaps I was confused. I thought he was selling kits.

Hi.
Its the same wing and airfoil, just without the fuselage.
3 mm depron for ailerons and fin.
The fin, wing tip and learing edge is reinforced with fiberglas tape.
4 x AAA battery
CG at 95 mm

Good luck

Any chance you could post a photo of the layout of the internals speedster? I want to build one of these for my girlfriend to fly when we're out. She really wants to fly (I bought a buddy lead today) and this would be perfect for her to learn on and have fun with.

Will.
