Howdy people..

I recently build me a few flying wings.. A smaller one (80cm across).. and in this build.. a slightly bigger/faster one (100cm across)

I aimed at a flying weight of about 700 gram.. It turned out to be 642 gram.

Parts:



The new wing, drawn out on a 100x70cm piece of foamboard:



For comparison.. The SFW:

The wing cut out:



Because this wing is a self-designed one.. I don't know the CG yet.. So I measured the center of lift.. I'll just take a CoG in front of that, based on the characteristics I want..





KF2 airfoil attached to the front..



Folded back and glued..



Made 2 mock-up vertical stabs.. And cut out the (black) ailerons:



Installed the 2 servo's.. And put some decoration on the wing

Not the best of video's.. But at 0:25 there is a bit of the maiden flight.. (with a LOT of wind)

Nice wing, I like it... Did you happen to measure it's speed yet? It looks fast..

Thanks

And yep.. I measured a run last Monday (GPS tracker), and it said 187 km/h (116 miles/hour)

Next up would be:
+ reducing the drag as much as possible
+ trying the thing on 4S (so far I've been flying on 3S)

You'll need a bigger ESC if you do 4s. And instead of kf2 a kf4 may give you more speed. Very cool plane. I've tryed making a wing like this before but it was swirly and didnt fly well.

I think my wing is (very) stable because I have quite a big sweep (the wings are angled back more then in most wings)
