You know it took a bit but it was just stupid minor little changes that made a world of difference.

Well they certainly paid off
Wot, no Depron?

Finally got the thing airborne today! Video to come but 3 good flights, the last one sadly curtailed by me running out of battery and coming up short of the runway but it works that's the main thing!
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

The large wing tips smoothed it out?

Seemed to - and NAZE32 stability is a big no no! Nearly lost it when I flipped it on.
First two flights were really nose heavy though and the last wasn't too bad, just need to work on the timer and pull 30 seconds off I think

Well I added that 1/2" to the trailing edge and doubled the size of the wingtips and a whole new guy to fly.

Managed to get in a quick test flight this morning with a Turnigy Nanotech 4S 2650 35-70C battery.



Doesn't have the same punch as the Zippy Compact 2750 45C it seems but it is lighter by a few grams.
Will need more testing I think but prefer the larger battery for punch and getting the extra flight time.
Almost ran out of juice at the end so had to loop around onto the runway further up than I normally would but still made it in ok.

Fun little wing, handles the wind pretty good.
