I fly some scale and sport now and then but my love is wings.

Simple elegance with no waste... No hauling around parts that don't pull their own weight.

This is a 30 inch wing with an MH45 foil running a Mega 16/15/4 with a 6x3 prop on 3S2100 lipo pack

It's pure muscle and agility in the air.

A very impressive noise rcw, I didn't know electric motors could sound like that.  I could see that, as with most tailless aeroplanes stability was a bit of a problem and I admired your piloting skills as you managed to stop it crashing in those long periods of instability and even managed to land it safely.  I am sure that if you added a fuselage with a tailplane on the end, with your talent, you could get it to fly quite smoothly.
Congratulations

You don't think the high roll rate and going like a bat out of h*** have something to do with it? I hope your tongue is firmly in cheek. I've flown a couple of gliders with configurations like that which were quite stable. As long as you didn't try flying too slow without a rudder, when the adverse yaw was a problem. If you think that was noisy, try listening to something similar that has the prop in the back!
