Blended Winglet C Plane

Filed under: Uncategorized — @ 10:08 pm


400mm plane with blended winglets curled into a C.  I’ve tried the winglets in the usual L shape and now the C.  There appears to be a bit of improvement with the C form for the winglets.  Reducing the elevator forces by flattening the tail pinch increased the glide slope to greater than 10:1.  Over 16 feet the drop is a bit over a foot.  Throwing the plane a bit harder and it rises, and hits the wall at about the same height as at launch.  I need a really big room for a fair test.
