Stephen_Falken: what's with the going in cricles?


It was foretold.
Will it go 'round in circles?
Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky?

I had nfi what I was watching but now know what I didn't see in the video.

It's not really "unpowered" if it has a power source. It's only as "unpowered" as those Australian solar powered cars, or a pirate ship.

I used to be into dynamic soaring RC gliders, there's a couple decent spots around where I'm at when the wind cooperates.

You quickly learn to over-engineer your wing spars.  Nothing like hiking half a mile down a hill hoping to retrieve the radio gear and servos from your expensive lawn dart because the wing folded up under load.

I had programmable toggles on my transmitter that allowed me to step down the input sensitivity as my laps got progressively faster during a run.  The faster the sailplane is moving, the less input you need on the stick, and it was really easy to overcorrect when the glider was hauling ass.

Fun stuff, expensive hobby, miss it / don't miss it.

The circles are what helps build up that incredible speed. Plus at those speeds, if it went straight, they'd never find it again out in that desert.

If they gave it swept back wings, could it go supersonic?
