Large Rogallo, Flying Kite (???)


I have a Rogallo with a 72" wingspan that's in a desperate need of a new home. It's been hanging in the garage for too long and it's time for it to move to someone elses garage.

It is made out of carbon fibre tubes and two large sheets of rip-stop nylon fabric. The V-tail has a stabilator-like control surfaces. It has been flow a total of three times and it's a slooooow flyer. I have lost interest in this design and it's been hanging in the garage ever since.

$50 for the airframe, including the servos (two Hitec HS-55's). The motor, ESC, and receiver that are in the pictures, are NOT included. I am open to trades, so please let me know.

Due to it's size, I will not ship it. It's for local sale only in the Sacramento, CA area. I will be going to the RC Country swap meet on Saturday, April 19th, so I could meet you there if you'd like.

Thank you for looking,

Vas

EDIT: I completely forgot to include a picture of the wing (sail) when it's completely collapsed. It disconnects from the airframe in a few seconds (the magic of Velcro) and can be disassembled in few more seconds. Picture has been added.

I am not aware of anybody making a kit of this size, however there are several threads on RCGroups that have described how other's have made them:

I'd love to buy it if you can collapse it enough to ship.

Vas, what motor and battery do you use on this. I may be considering this for an AP platform, so looking for long flight time and good lift.

Currently it has my standard Esskay 400XT motor, CC TB18 and TB 3s 1320mAh battery.

Has this sold? I'd love to own it as I already have the Gymallo and would love to have a larger one. It looks like you did a great job in building the wing such that it could collapse if you choose to ship it.

(Great ebay 300+ items & 100% rating)

Thanks,
