The Ugly Ugly Stick

Discussion in 'Scratchbuilding!' started by Wildthing, Dec 15, 2017.

  1. Well my new experiment, airfoil wings, forward and rearward swept. Motor will be mounted into the vertical, going to go with a low kv and big prop. Wings are just sitting in their approximate placing.

    Yup. Ugly. Threw up in my mouth a little bit. If it flies, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

    I like it! Unconventional = Cool! Unconventional sometimes = crash'n burn.:p Wish you luck with it Wildthang.
     
  5. I can crash ugly or pretty, don't matter to me. :D My goal is to see if it will carry 2 2200 3S batteries and still fly good, well slow and stable ;) . Might be my first FPV plane, have the equipment just never done it.

    Seems like it hard to come up with an original design.
    I did start this project years ago and never finished it, the Miles M35.
    It`s still in the attic. This is what is should look like when/if it gets done.

    Finally, something new. What is of interest to me is the motor will be on a offset axis which may/maynot cause a problem. Will be very interesting to where you think the CG will be.

    The swept back is like mine in the rear and my FSW wing is alot further back then yours. FSWings are real hard to fly and each is different due to different leading edge/trailing edge with/without ailerons. Trying to determine deflections of ailerons/elevator whatever is also, so start off by high exponential values.

    When the wing is forward, it looks like your plane, hope it goes!!!!
