What is it?

Can't be an ARFCOMer. There's no toes in the picture.

I know there was one guy on here who built a bunch of similar things. Except I'm pretty sure there was tannerite involved.

Uh, what a unique contraption.

That looks like Iran's new stealth fighter.

Can't be anyone here, no bombs or missiles, no replica 30mm canon on the nose.

I don't know, but that aileron says "Classified", so you probably shouldn't be posting pictures of this thing on the internet.

That is a foamie. Bluecore by dow is very well suited for these. Bluecor is hard to find now, protection board will work, but lacks the vapor barrier on both sides (which makes it much more ridged). That one is not mine, but I have a few. I have one built on that design, but it is too slow for my taste. I have one that is more pear shaped (long delta wing) that is much better performing.
lipo battery in front is fairly new tec, but the johnson 250 motor is low tech - phase modulated dc is much more efficient.
that one is not finished yet, one control arm and all the control linkages are missing.

must be an IED, i see wires controller board and battery. some here on arfcom would say the person that built it should be shot in the head.

it's called a "foamy"

I don't built flying wings though.

whatever it is, it passed UL testing

...and is that a Zippo on the nose?

Li-Poly battery.

light weight , high energy.

And if you short them out, they explode.

Looks like the front edge is wired with LED's.

UFO sightings anyone?

Looks like a hillbilly Zagi...

Also need to have the pushrods from the servo's to the ailevons, I also think I would work on that motor mount a little more, maybe a dab of gorilla glue?..

still kinda cool for a cheap flying wing.

The crazy thing is, if you put that on a bridge in a major city.....it would shut the town down and have live news coverage for 2 days.

A friend and I built 20 of them Saturday. But we fly them for a shoot, and we use EPS and cardboard. Er...ours are glow engines as well.

And yes, we do load some of them with a binary mix.

40 or so airplanes total. I understand that the line is completely sold out, so 40 planes, 2 pilots, and 450 folks with FA weapons trying to shoot them down. We should get in about 160 flights total.

It's a funny thing to hear someone burn 2k rounds through a minigun trying to kill this airplane, and then just fly out of the dust cloud unmarked...
