Default Spider Delta

Attached below is a pic of my little Spider Delta. I finished this little plane to take to the Small Festival in Little Rock. I have been flying it now for 3 weekends, and I am real happy with it.

I was hoping to create a little delta that would float around the field rather than scream across like a Diamond Dust. The little plane came out exactly right. It will do low speed aerobatics just over the runway, but it will also pull away from a 1/2aShrike with a Norvel.061 in a pylon race.

The stats are as follows......
power Cox.049 with throttle sleeve
WingSpan 26"
Wing Area 260"
3ch (throttle, elevons)
Weight approx 10-13 ozs
I built it with Hitec 555 rec, hs81 servos, and a 150ma battery pack. I drew the plans in CAD, but currently they are only builder's plans.

matchlessaero- Great looking aircraft! Looks like you build as well too. I really like the clear covering with the yellow. I would like to build one of these for a Thunder Tiger .07, if you develop a set of plans I would certainly buy one from you. You should put together a write up and send it in to one of the magazines. Thanks...Brian
