Help with new project

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I want to try something different.....I have been flying for about 10years now ,I want to take the wing off my pt 40 and turn it into a flying wing,the fuse is done due too many repairs. I have a os 25 which I took off my shrike.. It will be something I can hand launch and land it in tall grass if I need to....Is there anybody out there with some ideas or plan for my project.....Thanks Gabe.......

Hi Gebe,

PT 40's wing is not designed to fly by it self, its purely trainer wing and would need alot of swept back angle to fly as flying wing, i my opinion its better if you look for flying wing instead of using PT 40's wing as your experiment.

I don't want to miss lead you but its going to very difficult to make flying wing out of stright flat airofoiled trainer wing, i have electric flying wing with speed 400 motor if you are interested in...let me know...

Do sign the petiton. We could Save our Connie CF-TGE, We still have chance, Once gone we will lose our History and Heritage forever....

I did this once with an old foam core I had lying around. No harm in experimenting, it's a great way to learn. Just remember you'll be test flying an untried design, best to do it during quiet times, and make sure everyone around knows this is a test flight of an unproven design. Don't do it alone, make sure someone is there to rescue you if something goes wrong.

I would suggest you consider lateral stability (an issue with flying wings) and provide enough horizontal stab (aka fin) area.

Keep it light and start with short unpowered glides into high grass to make sure you have the balance correct. I assume you're planning on elevons?

Get a couple of ft. of plastic drainpipe for a fuse. Two rudders on the back made from coroplast about the same size as what you have. Cut the wing through a bandsaw, flatten it and glass with two layers of 6 oz. glass, no spar needed. CG around 15 to 20% I/4 in. of reflex in the strip elevons to start. Landing gear works fine bolted on just behind the motor. Go to the (Spad To The Bone ) website for more ideas.
Tried for my kamikazi pilots licence. Flunked the test.
