Kite + Slow Stick = more Perversion
Here's some more Slow Stick Perversion- this time involving a $9 kite from Harbour Freight and some Slow Stick parts. My partner and Dawn Patrol member Bill Mc Neal (wmcneal) built an Ultralight from one of these kites, some alunimum and a 'G.I. Joe'. Not to be left out, I came up with this design.
Both use "wing warping" to turn- a servo pulls down on one side of the kite causing the plane to bank. It takes a while to get used to, but it is very effective. Bill's depends on the motor to rise and fall, but the Kite Stick uses the elevator, making it a bit more stable than Bill's
The rudder is functional also, but not so responsive. I'll be taking it out in the future. The Stick uses a BP-21 as a pusher and has plenty of power, but if I had it to do again, I'd use a higher kv motor.
Here's a movie we did for Youtube of the Kite Stick. You can see more of Bill and My projects at http://www.youtube.com/user/nfdawnpatrol and http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=wmcneal42
