Hi ensemble,

I read a lot on this forum and learned more, not forgetting that I consulted several times the plans section also.
So it's time now to contribute a little with what I'm experimenting.

This is a plank I'm using to experimenting about aerodynamics, build techniques and, lastly, new materials.

The last fuselage I built is in flax 200g/m² satin fabric.
I was just curious how a vegetal fabric would behave, beside using non toxic, non petroleum materials.

The fuselage is really thick, incredibly stiff and heavy: 160g, when the previous one did range from 100g to 120g!
Btw this is the 5th I did.




If you want to watch more, here is a picture collection from beginning, including the mould build

and here is the maiden flight of the first two prototypes

On my channel there are several more test flights

Best regards,
