Flying Wing February 12, 2011
Check out my new flying wing! The plane is made from a pair of EasyStar wing tips, a custom kevlar body (thanks Geoff!), and a handfull of electronics. The design is loosely based off of the AeroVironment Wasp. Below is a short video showing a few build photos and a recent flight set to the smooth tones of The Black Keys. Check back later for some high resolution still photos from the flight!
Tip: View in fullscreen and in HD. The plane is hard to spot otherwise. Also, read fast – I flash the still photos and descriptions past pretty quickly.
