The old becomes new again.

Once upon a time I was pondering a 2M RES for noodling around the sky. Recently I was contacted by a couple of nice gents from RCGroups and I think I may pick that gauntlet up again after I finish building my Bird of Time. Maybe I’ll call it the Birt of Dime but it’s original name was the Beaky Buzzard, named after the rather daft buzzard that pestered Bugs Bunny in so many cartoons. Here’s the raw design in XFLR5. The tail looks too small though. I need to run it through a stability analysis still but I expect it will grow quite a bit in span.
