Well took it for a little test spin today, well holy crap super tail heavy characteristics. Moved the battery as far as I could go , better but I think another inch forward would have helped but no extra room. I could do 3D loops so easy but turning was another story, had a hard time fighting the wind to bring it back home so cut the losses and power and let it float to the ground like a leaf and went for a long walk to find it. 2 little girls said behind that big bunch of trees, I went looking in the trees and no luck and when I came out looked across the field and saw the little fishtail tips sticking out of the tall grass. Tiny little cracks in the fuselage and that was about it. I think I could get it to fly by adding weight to the front but being that it will be a wall queen anyways I will touch up the bruises and finish the paint job and give it to my neighbor before I destroy it.

I built a UK give way sign and the weight needed to be WAAAYYYY forward as it`s all wing delta.
Wot, no Depron?

I could load the video to YouTube but I think it is a waste of time, it's not going to be a daily flyer anyways

You know what is slightly off with your design, so a MK II version is needed!

Cheers.

Yes, I think you should pursue the design as well Jeff, but not the fish tails

Well this one was meant as a gift anyways . Hard trying to calculate the cog on a round wing , if I was to pursue this one I would move the motor ahead and do the prop slot. Even with the 2200 battery all the way into the nose I was still tail heavy. When I cut the power it did float like a leaf to the ground top side up. The fishtails are what allowed me to find it in the tall grass.

If you cut the plate and kf`s and gubbings you could establish the CG with some weights and test glide it until the correct CG is found, mark it. Then place the battery and motor so it balances in the right place. A round disc can be flown very well, check out the FT Nutball.

Yes, the Nutball has a HUGE following on rcgroups.com as well.
Just another day in paradise!
Any day above ground is a GOOD day.

If you were Merican you could paint it in the old stars and stripes and pretend to be Capn Merica.
He used to have a similar shaped shield before he got the new round one.
The round one is better for throwing at people you don`t like.
There`s another great idea from the Bandit. A Capn Merica round shield that you could throw at people you don`t like and instead of missing you could guide it straight to their jugglier vain via radio control.
Now if I was plagued by Skeeters the way you are I would load up my Capn Merica shield with a can of bug spray and go to the field and give em a good dose of insecticide. Make sure Antman is not there flying his his Flite Test mini Bee or there might be trouble.

Thanks, my first attempt at multi colored flames without all the right materials.
