I suppose the eighth is the target drone
I wonder if an armin wing would work on a slope version as I do like the planform so I've printed the plans and will give it a shot. Will go for a low profile wing using 6mm depron base,6-9mm high spar and 3mm depron top skin. Will finish with 75 micron laminating film with coloured packing tape on top. Might take some liberties with the fin and go with a removable single fin out of correx as that will make it easier to cram in my wing bag .

Here's where I am at the moment but having now skinned the top with 3mm depron I think the tappered spar height might be a tad low. Oh well, didn't take long so I can always build another one. I did extend the span by 40mm each side and dispensed with the angled centre section

Georg Seewald made a fine video of 5 KungFu in service:

Thomas,
Looks like your gang is enjoying their combat time. It reminds me of our experiences here at SEMFF.

Not yet Thomas. Fuse is cut and shaped and just need to decide on internal bulkheads and gear placement. A few repairs have pushed it to the back of the queue. Took me over 2 hours to remove 8 nuts and bolts holding the servos in my Avart-V glider as the previous owner had glued the nuts on Will then be off to my brothers for some much needed fibre glassing

It`s not my gang, it`s Georg Seewald`s club near Munich. We have only four so far in Cologne.

^I think the red plane was the winner - that last piece fluttering down looks like it came from it?

This looks like a great design and I'm really excited to start the build!

I printed out the tiled plans and glued them all together but I noticed some issues with the symmetry on the wing so I decided to merge all the files into one, fix the symmetry, and add multiples of the "x2" parts that need cut.

The pdf should be print out on ANSI E size on a large format printer set to print "actual size" instead of "Fit to page". I've got the dwg file but it's not a valid file type for attaching here.

Thomas B. could you take a look to make sure I didn't inadvertently change something by mistake?
