I can tell that Marvin gets a big grin on his face every time he flies around in his saucer!

Rather than start a new thread and since this design is based on the saucer design here is my next project, a Flying Wing based on the B-2 Spirit. It will have the ventral rudders like the saucer and my Boeing FX-II Sea Eagle.

Ya'know I got to working on this and said to myself 'what if the wings were reversed?'
So now I'm working on a forward-swept blended Wing. Kinda looks organic like a Bat.

So here is the glide testing of what I call the "Krazy Ivan" Berkut Flying Wing:

That thing is uber cool! Looks like a cross between a pteradon and a manta ray.

Thanks Dave.
I had a bad sinus head ache for the last few days as I conceived this wing. So it is the product of medicated and distorted reality. It glides really well. I wanted to video outdoor glide tests but the wind here has been steadily above 8 mph. I don't like the fuse or nacelle configs so I'm reworking them too. It's supposed to rain now for four days so I won't be able to maiden her till late next week.

Sorry you had the head ache Bob, but the design under what ever the circumstances really appeals to me. Keep up the good work sir.
