Nice, I remember as child being fascinated by an article about NASA's rogallo development in an old edition of Aeroplane Monthly inherited from my uncle :roll:

@Gipetto,
warhead052 admitted on the chat that he was trolling, hence my harsh replys.Better ignore him.

I have good hopes that it'll fly today ! Nice weather, and dad's not at work.
I am a little bit worried by the Center of Gravity, tough. I placed it at an arbitrary value, and tested it by running across the room with the rogallo in my hands ...
Not sure if the results are any good :?

But anyway, the rudder and elevator have so much control on the plane that I'm not afraid I'll loose control. I'm crossing my fingers :o

Demon, I wasn't fully trolling, but I do really want it to fly. I am just sick of being trolled that it feels good to return the favor.


Gippeto, Thanks! I might actually use that.

Hey, I've found the cheapest way to display the video on a screen ! (0$)
My dad had a RF to NTSC to USB key converter to watch TV on a laptop, and gave me the free use of it.

So I will install the 900 Mhz video Rx on my laptop's lid, along with its battery, and with the USB to NTSC converter I will receive the video directly onto my computer's screen !

But I am not there yet. The maiden (Plain aircraft, not drone) flight will take place tomorrow at 7:00 AM in the 40 000 square meters terrain near my house.
