Currently using 3/8" material for the RadYak 57 to get enough throw. The built up ailerons with the diagonal bracing are pretty stout.



I should have said when the rons are given input. The way the drawing is above, the rons would be stronger than the wings.



Agreed, I was just off on a tangent :blotto:

I'm kicking around some ideas for stiffening the wing at the moment that aren't shown yet. Don't worry, she'll be strong as anything when done. Ironically I have flown a plane with a wing that didn't have any bracing and it did torque a lot. It was a prototype of Spaz's that I got my hands on that never made production. It never broke and flew well enough but the twist was noticeable.

As for the emphasis on light - what you're not seeing here is the overall size. The fuse will be about 20-30% longer than my cap but the wing has roughly 30-40% LESS square inches. The overall wingloading will actually go up from my previous cap but the wing style is of course much different.

There's a lot going on that hasn't been seen yet - just stick along for the ride :)

I've had this idea kicking around in my head since about 2011-2012 but all the pieces weren't there yet. Now that I have a lot more design experience I think I can make it work. Goofy's bird was great since it was a practical demonstration that something that had a little in common with my design worked as well as it did. I also have my issues with his edge since it is built to his flying style, not mine, but like everything I fly, it is inspiration.

People bitch endlessly about SFG's but they do work. That's why most modern full scale aircraft run them. There is a possibility that my design will utilize them when all is said and done. It just depends on how it performs.

I spent some time in the garage and played around with some innovative methods of stiffening the wing up in real materials. I now have my balsa viagra sorted out so I can get back to CAD. Sadly I've just been dropped into the deep end with a couple of new contracts for work so my design time will be limited for the next week or two. Hopefully I can steal a little time away to keep things moving.

Wing design is largely finished. Fuse and tail feathers are starting to take shape 8)

Cool!! Is that an illusion, or is the wing and the stab not both on the thrust line like a typical slab :tu:

No illusion. The EVO's had stabs out of line but not by nearly as much. Some of the design elements of the EVO fuse that will carry over to this new bird allow me to step the wing and stab out a little bit from the tube without a reduction in strength.

What about coupling?

Allen, I appreciate your contributions, but they need to be shaped like big, jiggly boobies!

I've never noticed much of an issue on other planes I have flown with out of line wing/stab arrangements so I'm not worrying about it.

I find it interesting no one has commented on the horizontal stab yet 8)

Flying stab! Did you need to airfoil it to get enough carbon in there to make it Case-Proof?
