Default RE: Pattern Plane With Dorsal And Ventral Fins


ORIGINAL: Bundubasher

Very interesting concept.

How does it fly (i.e. knife edge, roll, cross wind handling) compared to a ''normal'' plane of that size without the fins?

Just wondering - The power version makes sense but the slope soarer in 1st post may side slip in cross wind on a slope. If this powered concept makes a big difference, why don't we see more of these type planes around?

Except for ''foamies'' etc, I've seen some planes with ''canard '' wings and ''stall strakes'' but not with these extended vertical fins.

Here's a video of the sloper in action.
