  • Aircalcs3 - J-47 (Folded Slope Wing)
  • Wingspan 40"
  • Weight 9oz
  • Battery 4 Cell AAA NiMH
  • Servos HXT500
  • Designed to fold in half for transport
  • Started with winglets
  • Glided OK, but tip stalled like crazy with the tiny lift at local slope
  • Removed winglets and added long center fin for side-arm launch
  • Side-arm didn't work well, the huge wing had a lot of angular momentum on launch and the tail had trouble straightening it out
  • Went back to winglets and added motor & folding prop
  • Worked well as motor glider, still tip stalled a lot
