    Flying wing as cheap and simple option for basic fun flying.

    Yes, I understand the limited % range, but a lower AR means a longer MAC which will result in a larger cg range (distance) when the 2-5% MAC range is applied. Proposed distribution of loads. Pilot, passenger and main fuel (in wing roots) - all to be on CG. Small header/reserve tank forward of...

    Thanks Norman, I did see that and my current preferred wing plan has a local extension to the elevator region. I also read that larger chords can result in a wider cg range for a plank which I am hoping will be true. I’ll try to post an initial sketch shortly.

    Thanks so much for this, its really helpful to me, seeing the the analysis behind something so familiar, clearly not bsld or even close. But explains to me the good handling and control around the stall.

    Flying wing as cheap and simple option for basic fun flying.

    Yes, thanks Norman I was thinking of having a go at designing for bsld and taking the benefit of a more moderate fin size. (Fin is staying in the middle, pushed well back). Expecting to make a rc prototypes to try out the different fin proportions amongst other things. On-board gyro’s with...

    Flying wing as cheap and simple option for basic fun flying.

    Thanks Norman, a good friend of mine is flying one of those, they do go well - and also proof that the sun does occasionally shine in the UK! I'm researching to learn more and also to inform the initial design of a 2 seat (sub-600kg) microlight. Configuration similar to an AV44. I'd not be...

    Flying wing as cheap and simple option for basic fun flying.

    Thanks Victor Bravo, I'm hopeful that the collection can somehow be shared. I am aware of the Al Bowers leactures but have not watched yet, I will certainly do so... I have to admit to being specifically interested in planks and have been reading up on anything I can find. Lots of useful stuff...

    Thanks everyone, I have contacted MM4440 in the hope that ESA can somehow share TWITT.

    Flying wing as cheap and simple option for basic fun flying.

    Hello all, it's my first post so please be gentle... Whilst reading up on flying wings here on the forum I have seen many references to the content of TWITT newsletters. I'm guessing there would be a wealth of useful info within, is there a public access archive available? Andrew (UK)
