Next day of the flying rectangle.

Today I moved the C.G. more forward. The plane flys much better now. Great to see we can make a reasonably controllable aeroplane with minimal shaping. I think for the actual head tracker I’d at least make the trailing edge taper to 5mm which is the same as the control surfaces. That way we can bring the control surfaces back to the size used on Redious and not overload the servos.

All the red plastic parts you see on this plane are available on this site. The motor mounts aren’t up yet, but will be soon.
