RC Rogallo wing

Unread postAuthor: Demon » Thu Jun 30, 2011 5:25 pm

A lil' project i'm working on. No flights yet, but this platform seems promising, as it only weights 1kg for twice the wing area of its solid wing competitor (the easystar).
So it can carry an extra kilo without any problem, and the said extra load will be a wireless camera link system. Simply put, it'll be a drone.
(The camera will be installed on the kite's tip, where there is a plain surface)

Installing an electric mini airsoft on it could be a lot of fun :o
I'll put better quality pictures if it sparks any interest.

There never were. The cg is that low that they are not needed. The easystar works that way.

Sheit, I have a Phasor Electric Glider 54" wing span (half built) that steers with a flap and rudder. Demons wing should handle great in comparison to mine lol.

Demon, tell me if I am hoping too high here, but if I was to buy one of those foam airplanes from a dollar store, and a couple of 9v motors with a pair of propellers and hot glued them on the plane, would it work?

:P What would you say to buy then? I just need this to fly in a line (doesn't have to be straight as long as it flies) and last until the battery runs out, the wind knocks it to the ground, or I catch the plane and shut it off.
