7 Foot Forward Swept Flying Wing


Here it is! Done and flown!
I didnt edit the video, take off is at 1:05. Camera sucks too. But, it is what it is.

LOL, thanks fellas. A minor thrust angle tweak and I think it will be pretty darn sweet! Right now, it flies almost as good as it looks.

Wow, that is an awesome looking wing. I notice you have four control surfaces. How are they mixed? Do you have something like crow flap mixing to slow down?

For the programming its pretty simple on my old DX7. I have 4 HS645mg servos in it. They are plugged into the following channels Aileron/Elevator/Rudder/Flaps. I then mixed aileron to rudder, aileron to flaps, then elevator to rudder, elevator to flaps. I then set the flap and rudder throws to zero. With this setup, pull "up" all 4 elevons move up, push "down", all move down. Turn "right" both left side elevons go down and right side go up and vice versa for "left turn". Simple.

I need 4 more mixes to set up "Crow". But, I just dont have enough on the DX7.

So, basically just elevon mixing, since both control surfaces on each side move together? I'm not familiar with the DX7, but if you could set it up like a 4 servo sailplane wing, you could have dual aileron, dual flap, then have the flaps follow the ailerons, and still have crow mixing. I just don't know if you could have the elevon mixing on top of that as well, though to have everything move together for elevator control.

Anyway, it seems to fly great the way it is. I was just thinking of a way to slow it down for landing, but it looks like you have plenty of space for that anyway. Again, that is an awesome wing!
