Here is my attempt at the Horten Brothers Ho-229 flying wing.

Wow,
That is a cool start, how are you going to control wing tip flutter?

I like flying wings so I will be watching your progress.

I plan on doing one with an EDF.

Thanks. It's pretty rough right now.
I was thinking about an Single 70mm EDFb too. But will most likely do a mid-prop setup.
I've been using KFm4 airfoils with CR on the leading edges and across the center in an 'A' frame config on my B-2 and PAK DA flying wings. My aerial cam vids with my B-2 have not revealed any wing tip flutter. I have seen the whole back-end of the B-2 flutter at high speeds and in heavy winds a lot though.
If you like flying wings check out my threads on the B-2 and PAK DA flying wings.

The powered version takes shape...
I have completed the build and tested the gizmos as well as loaded the wing and tossed her heavy for the final glide tests.
And now for the maiden flight...

A quick glide test of the second Horten Nurflugel.

Thanks Chellie.
I'm glad you like them.
You might want to try the "5EZP" Ho-229.
I think it makes a great flying wing.

Found these drawings of the flying wing from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and began wondering if I could make this one fly?

With the cool wings you make, and the work you put into them to get them flying good I know you will. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.:)
