    RE: Mythical Beast almost ready for toledo

    VERY COOL!!! Please let us see video when it flies. But be very careful on speed. With huge control surfaces like that has (and lots of chord), flutter is likely going to be an issue at a relatively low speed. Do not try to get that thing going fast!!!

    RE: Mythical Beast almost ready for toledo

    I intend to keep the speed to 80-(calculations indicate100 would be OK I used some serious servos) I chose an Epler 385 airfoil to create huge lift at low speed and it is naturally draging through the air(no pun intended) First jet I've ever designed to go slow as possiblemakes landing a breeze original unit flew like a cessna
