    Dyke Delta mechanical flight control schematics... any pictures out there?

    Working on our flying wing project, our elevon mixer, in its current form, is inspired from a Beech Bonanza V-Tail ruddervator mixer. We know it will work great, but we are curious to know how the Dyke Delta's mixer is laid out. Does anyone have any pix they would be willing to share? Thanks!!

No, I am not suggesting a category for your general R/C aircraft; I have personally had it up to here with drone mania, and there are plenty of sites out there to get that fix!

    In the course of doing some research on designing a retract system for my bird. I am particularly interested in an electric actuation system. Does anybody know of any actuators out there that are suitable for a light aircraft (ie under 2500lbs). I already have a design for the struts and...
