S you're going full blown dlg? or not quit that light and user it for sloping?

or a bit of a mix like the aeromod coquillage thingy?

I've got a Blaster 2 DLG, I managed to twang the wing a little so dont DL it anymore but its an amazing machine in light slope lift... I'm thinking of using for this years aeros vid contest.... to be a little different

It won't be that light, but a change in wing section...
A bit of this, and a bit of that!

It appears to be a sloper designed by committee!

That can't be good! We'll see!

Yeah,
Not easy, but we'll get it right!

So, to add to the Design team, I have also enrolled Graham1234!

Graham is our local talented aerodynamicis who will carry out some analytical work and construct the "test" wings.
Sean tells me he has made some headway with the Mad-elevator.....

And Bakkie....
Do you think the "scienceguy" knows how to use a hammer?
By the way, what have you done with him?
I take it he has arrived safely!

Well I have armed ScienceGuy with an TX and some slopies and we will see what he can do with it on Wednesday!

Had a good day today took them on The IronMan route and stopped at Maitlands to introduce the slope to him... it was awesome even the dolphins came to see who's visiting.

We started this thread over coffee!

We still trying to work out how we got ourselves into this!

Sean gets a glazed look in his eye when we talk about progress....
Bakkie starts looking for a waiter and orders another wrap....
And me,
being the dedicated type, will shape the fuz this weekend!
I can't speak on Graham's behalf (he lives in Port Alfred 130km away) but I'm sure he's on it!
We'll keep you posted...

What are the design criteria for this project? are the slope rebels becoming vtpr rebels?
