Some new test planes, I just had to try a BWB after seeing Scott's video.

Simple 3 channel setup [Throttle/Ail/Elev]
1000Ma 3 cell
Microjet v3
6x4 APC
Made of foamboard
25amp speed control

Its quite beaten up, sadly I took the images after the tests.


Servos are set up the same as on the stealth


As expected, extremely stable and a great glider. So I took it a bit further. Same power setup, added rudder this time, 6 foot wingspan, Kf2 airfoil.

6 foot wingspan?! Is it under powered with the microjet?

Not at all, 90% of the load is going onto the wings, and the thing only weighs about 25oz. The microjet can really pack a punch.

Man, that tower motor mount looks like you asking for it to break when you have a hard landing.

I'm just sayin.

It has carbon rods running through it, its rock solid. Though I have managed to break the prop once in an inverted landing
