Raptor 2.0 A real Dyna-Soar...... 2M bagged DS'er/Sloper build Log


Hi im currently in the Process of Designing a 2m DS Ship in Cad For light to medium DS and Some Slope ...called the Raptor 2.0
You may notice the Trileronss on the Ailerons to Reduce Tip Vortices...
it Uses A Thinned RG-14 Foil and i am aiming for an AUW of 1.5-3Kg...RTF With Full ballast and 800g no ballast
i Plan to Use a T-tail ... Though i am unsure on Vert Stab size?
any Help?
Let me know your Thoughts?

Looks neat, the flaps seem huge in comparison to the trilerons... You gonna do hollow molded?

No need for 1K carbon on a DS ship. I'd go straight to 3K. Much, much, much, much cheaper.
