Product Description

Here’s an EDF version of a propjet that has had a cult-like following for many years. A favourite for experimenting with different power setups, all in the search for the highest
speed. This design allows for almost any 70mm EDF fan to be used.

Also included in these files is a modular ramp to be used with bungee launches. Using readily available 1/2” PVC and your printed fittings, you have a great alternative to hand
launches. Watch the videos here.

Flying wings are unique in that there is little to no fuselage and no empennage. This typically means less drag, lighter wing loading, faster speeds and more manoeuvrability. However, flying wings suffer from being more sensitive to CG than typical aeroplanes and they can be hard to successfully maiden. This is where a proven design and setup is very helpful.

 

A high-performance flying wing is a lot of fun and will be the envy of the flying field.
Follow the manual for printing and setup and you’ll be rewarded with a plane that
will be your “go-to” plane regardless of outside conditions. Windy days is where this
design eats; add a stabilized RX and fly when everyone else is grounded.
Here are just a few of the innovations applied to this new design;
• Battery strap slots
• Adequate cooling intakes
• Robust double wall fuselage
• Internal wing space for carbon or other reinforcement
• Lightweight (for printing) single layer printing and webbing
• Plenty of space for different powerplants, ESC’s and batteries
• Sliding canopy with locking index
• Modular construction
• Servo covers and internal wire routing through the wingtips
• Supplied file for bungee launch hook and launch ramp
• Supplied files for printing your own decals for livery decoration.
• Two different tail cone choices and two nose choices.
• A new “bubble” canopy design. Either print whole or in separate pieces for using different coloured filaments. The original “windscreen” canopy is included as well.
• Either “Tip Tanks” or “Swept” wingtips choices are supplied.

Let’s get to it.
