Received a package in the mail today. Can you identify this aircraft?
This is CactusJackSlade of RCG's original SS Dragon that is also shown in Greg McNair's Aerial Photography Book. I'm now officially a SlowStick Member.
The wings are connected very simply. Carbon tubes on the inner part and a carbon rod on the outer part that just slide in the tubes. Tape holds them on. I will be ordering another SS kit to make a straight inner section of wing. The sailplane wing w/ailerons that I just built will also strap on.
Original build thread, and the First Flight Thread. The build thread has the details of the carbon tubes with kevlar thread wrap and why it's done that way.
Here is a link to my gallery, I left the right click disable turned off, and the originals turned on so you can really zoom in. Just mouseover and/or click the large picture.
It'll be flying this weekend. Currently its raining.
