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...

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.
