Tried glide testing my Hepcat.  It wanted to glide, but upon looking at the structure in actual sunlight, I found it wasn't put together quite right.  The wires holding the wing were not all of proper length.  Also had a few other problems.  So I am going to change the design, and call it the HepKitty.  I am changing the wire wing supports to a pylon, and also getting rid of the one blade prop, and just using a P-P 11 inch blade.  I will power it with a 10 gram motor, and hope it wants to fly.  I will use what Bill Dennis suggested before affixing the pylon, and that is to balance the model without the wing.  I'll post a picture after testing, to make sure it will even glide, in the "Show Your Newest Creations", so I don't pollute this thread on Hepcats

What's stall speed?  Undecided
