Flying Wings on Saturday


There were a couple of different flying wings on Saturday. I wish I took a picture to show what I am talking about. I am not talking about the wings Tower Hobbies were showing designed by Gary Wright; even though they are awesome flyers. Nice job Gary!

The ones I am talking about are the ones that looked very similar to the Zagi and the MS Composite Swift/Swift II. They looked like a flat wing with no winglets but they actually had very small winglets. I did not get a chance to ask the flyers what kit or even what plane it was. Does anyone have a name of these wings? No they were not the Outlaw Deltas. They looked like Swift II on steroids.

The F-27Q, Haydon, and Carbon Z Scimitar are all out of production and when I saw these fly I got excited about a new wing that is possibly out there besides Tower Hobbies new one, which I also want.

We were flying Tuffwings. 100mph foam wings. 2X-3X the performance of most any EPP wings currently available. Very tough, good for combat, pylon, soaring, whatever you want. Bummer is he stopped making them a few months back.

I think these were the wings I saw. Wouldn't you know when I find a replacement to my F-27 they stop making them. You cannot even get the Swift II in the US any more.

I will have to check out Crash Test Hobbies and see what they look like. I saw a couple of wings including Outlaw. The CrazE Wing by Gary Wright is cool also.

Freddy,

What are the names of the wings you and Kevin were night flying? I see a bunch of different wings on Crash Test Hobbies web site.

Probably Assasins.... Those are the most popular. Peety (Meanbaby) and Jason (BEF) both have a couple of these. The are well recommended by the AOA guys as well. I did see a Titan as well.
