    Waiting on weather to break. What effect would one expect from this wing foil? Decided to try this foil design to see how it will fly. If anyone has experience here please let me know and I can put my shovel back in the garage!! Chas F-22 Rapyor fresh off assembly line 002.JPG

    U may wanna take some more photos from different angles, coz if I can't tell where things start and end others may have the same problem.

    When designing our FRCFoamies F22 we found that the majority of the lift on the F22 is coming from the Lifting Body design on the bottom and the sculpted body on the top of the plane. Together they produce an airfoil shape to the whole plane which produces a cumulative effect! Crazy amount of lift even though the wing is flat. Leading edge flaps would do nicely for you on your f22 though.

    This is the maiden flight . The steps on the foil design made for a real glider. It was a fast flyer also. It was super fun!! chas

    Yes, both lenses were replaced. Can't remember ever seeing this well. Gonna build a few RC powers foamies soon. I have almost all of the plans from years ago on when he had the flying school bus!
