Twisty wing build thread

Recommended Posts

Bear
Am I wrong in thinking that twisty wing gliders are really all about the bling? Does anyone ever fly them?

Cactus from the other place regularly flies his own design twisty wing, its only about 10inch span and when he rolls it is so fast it is just a blur. Great fun watching it.

I fly mine whenever I can!

My Rotor50 had a good outing at the Orme fly-in on Sunday, 65mph on the edge most of the day, it was pumping almost as high as my R130.

A great day out in great company!

 

Get it done Andy B!

 

Regards

Rob

 

Sorry BB I stole your pic!

Nice Andy - sparless joiner is a great method for these types, nice one.

 

Which foil did you go for DA7520?

Finally got my mojo back after the January blues and some badly infected bites conspired to lay me low.

Fuses tooling good so time to tidy some wings up.
