What was that flying wing from the 70's?


I remember a build up flying wing from the late 70's that was polyhedral with a single rudder and a wing span of about 100 inches. Anyone have an idea of what plane it might have been? I think this might have been a design from the So Cal area.

You might want to take a look at this thread - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=536530. It's on the Windfreak being revisited. And I see RCM has the plans for it as well - http://www.rcmplans.com/index.php?ma...oducts_id=1557

There were many. Maybe the Raven from Dave Jones or any of the many that he designed in that timeframe

This may not be the one you are thinking of but it is another flying wing which has had great success.
