Default MiniRaceWing - Fly fast, Stay low

Hi Everyone,


A friend of mine and myself are avid FPV pilots. We have developed a fast, agile and easy to transport FPV plane with a twist: It is crash resistant and extremely fun to fly.





Here is how it works:
Your FPV and RC gear is inside a carbon fuselage. If you crash and the impact would rip the wings apart, they detach(!) without any damage. You can put everything back together in seconds and fly again

The crash release also makes the MiniRaceWing easy to transport. Detach both Wings and it fits into a backpack.


The Wings are designed for fast and agile flying. We don't need a thick airfoil and we don't need cutouts for the motor. The Airfoil of the MiniRaceWing is thin and efficient


We are about to manufacture the first MiniRaceWings.
If you are interested, take a look at our Kickstarter page for more information and flying/crashing videos.

I would love to hear your feedback!

I'll be glad to answer any of your questions.




Kind Regards,
Markus

FliteTest is flying the MiniRaceWing!

This is how the MiniRaceWing flies if you miss a vital carbon plate on the wing mount I hope they fly it again with the carbon plate installed

It's only two days till our Kickstarter for the MiniRaceWing ends.

We want to use this opportunity to thank all our supporters and ask anyone who is considering backing us to do so.

Even if we don't reach our goal, by showing your interest in the MiniRaceWing you can help us tremendously! The MiniRaceWing is a new concept and it was hard to guess how people would receive it.

Showing your support by backing us, you help us to plan beyond the Kickstarter.

We have been asked many times what happens if the Kickstarter fails. And we are happy to tell you that of course we have planned for both cases.

So If you are thinking about getting a MiniRaceWing please consider showing your support now, by backing.

Just a reminder, because we got asked a lot, how Kickstarter works. The money you back is not transferred until the goal is actually reached. It is only if we reach our Kickstarter goal that your account is charged and the money is transferred to us. If the Kickstarter doesn't reach its goal your account will not be charged.


Regards,
Markus

The Kickstarter has ended. Our goal was ambitious and in the end we didn't reach it.
But that doesn't mean the end of the MiniRaceWing, there is never only one way.


We have pre-planned for both Kickstarter outcomes. However, we will need a few days to select the best of our other options and check if all dependencies are still in place.


We will announce any news regarding the MiniRaceWing through our newsletter.
If you aren't already signed up please do so.

We like to thank all our supporters and all the people who expressed their wish to buy a MiniRaceWing after the Kickstarter.


You can contact us trough Facebook or send us an email at contact@miniracewing.com if you want to send us feedback or have a questions.


Regards,
Markus & Jonathan
