indoor flying wing, sorta A6 but not really
Description: This is a simple but light sport flying wing model.

Way back when, there was an A-6 postal contest, and even, as I recall, a part of it for "A-6 flying wings", which were allowed to use the extra square inches of the missing stab in the wing.

This model did something over two minutes under an 18 foot ceiling, but the turn was really strange looking and tight, so I suspect that it had much more potential.

Suggest building it as a pusher, which might cure some of the weird turn. Or perhaps a bit less dihedral. Or put a pusher prop on one side of the stick and a tractor on the other! Doesn't really qualify as an A-6, so suggest use of real prop instead of the flat paddle style these rules required. A much smaller prop shaft would be adequate as well. And possibly a larger diameter prop.

I can't find my original, this version was published in Wingovers and Wallbangers, Nov. 1998
