A little something i build last night:




And on its maiden flight

https://vimeo.com/54191704

Wingspan is 40cm, spine length 43cm and weight is 1.3grams without the tail.
The tail i had to improvise for the maiden flight because with the given wind it was not stable.
Either to much wind, or not enough V in the main wing.
But i'm quiet happy with how it turned out so far, and i got enough ideas how to make it even lighter and more stable in flight :)

Interesting!
How is it without the tail?
Fly inside???
Lets see some more pix!

ae:

Finished the next one, got the weight down to 0.9 grams, same size. But I think the framing got to soft, to be really useable. It curves to much when applying the tension on the frame. and doesn't glides as well as the other.

Thief: without the tail it seems to have a much lower upper wind limit before going all spinning. Indoor flight works, but i have no practice with it.

Very nice!

What fabric and carbon are you using?
