CG is not on the plan but it lines up right where I put the spar.

The deflection is very small, I just put it in with sub trim on my radio.

Those look pretty neat Foamball. I have really enjoyed flying smaller and smaller planes I just wish the wind in my area agreed with me.

Re: Small flying wing

Well I did some more test flying today and it flew well until I started to get the speed up.

With fresh batteries you can push it fast enough in level flight to experience mild pitch oscillations. If you enter a dive with lots of power on it enters violent pitch oscillations but as soon as you back off the throttle it resumes normal flight.

After I landed I noticed that the wing had broken all the way through the centre section and was only held together by the small spar. I will probably just beef up the spar and keep it moving slower as it was never really intended to be a speed demon.
