Cylon Raider - Plans Available - Kit coming soon! - New Video
Been thinking about this for a long time.... ever since i did the Viper!
Jettmandan made a special request that I do it so i popped this together tonight.
36" Span - Same TowerPro 2408-21 Motor i always use, probably a 1300mah battery.
I had to tweak the profile a bit to help the thing fly better. Mostly just enlarged the back end and shortened the front end. I am sure my buddy Rasterize will put together a cool skin for it once i finalize the design.
I was thinking that it might be cool to take the outer wing section and make the whole thing pivot as ailerons! The standard will be just the section between the vertical fins as elevons.
I also tossed in about 10 degrees of anhedral to really up the cool factor!!
I will be posting plans soon. I might even get crazy and build one!
Here are the plans for the Raider!
CG is about an inch or so forward of the front Carbon Tube. I will give some better info and a video soon!

Hey Ilectron, The guy that runs RCGroups actually worked on a design for this one but didn't end up getting very far with it.
It is tough to figure out a good way to make thinks sometimes. The trouble he ran into was there is not enough structure there to make it strong enough to stay straight! If it could be worked out it would be cool but i think the original one is cooler... and it makes more sense!
GPW, i think that your "To Build" list is probably longer than mine! At least you don't have to deal with a pesky 9-5 job interrupting your important stuff. I can't wait until i get there!
