(but you can also see with the parts laid out, theres a position for a Motor in the conventional rear location too).

very nice!

winglets are so cute, and you can fit tx (thin) antenna in there, keeping a clean design and making tx parts far away.

ETA? Price?

That is pretty sexy. I like that the central fuse extends all the way back over
the CG so you more control over the balance even when loaded up with a lot of gear
and batteries. One thing of concern is that they built *a lot* of reflex into the
trailing edge of the airfoil, which means they probably have a recommended CG that is well forward
of what's optimal, and it'll likely pitch up at higher airspeeds.

It also breaks my heart to see people buying stuff oversea to save 10 dollars and wait for 20 days.

According to BEVRC price is not set.

I love the looks of the wing , but im a little skeptical to the winglets, because they look identical to the Falcon EPO wing ... and that wing had really bad stall characteristics, and i think that might be because of the winglets causing drag when doing turns. When it stalls it will just go into a death spiral , which you really DONT WANT with a FPV plane... not safe.

Take a look here , 2:25
Thins death spiral happend more than once , and it was no mechanical or servo failure. Just stalling..

While changing the winglets can help, the death spiral is usually a result of some
mistake made in the design of the airfoil. Flying wing airfoils often are quite different at
the root than the tip, and sometimes also have washout (tips at lower angle of attack than root)
built into them. With a bad combination the tip stalls early and it can just get stuck in
that mode as it spins. The original Zagi flying wing did this. On the slope we've actually always
called this behavior "The Zagi Spiral of Death", even when we see it happen on other wings.
They had a chance to fix it when they redesigned the wing years later, but didn't. Newer
one does it just as much as the original, even with the same large winglets that
we use on all the other flying wings that don't have this problem.

Wow, that bird is going onto my shopping list. I'm really going to have to pull some crazy tricks to convince the wife when it comes out. Unlike some of my other birds, I definitely can't hide this one

Beautiful... I had been waiting for this a long time! I tried building a Taborca a while ago and it was so diificult to correctly set washout all along the wing/ now with moulded wings it's easy, light and smooth, Can't wait !!
