Sevtec Prospector Hovercraft Build Diary Chap 1
I am building a Sevtec Prospector which is an 18foot long hovercraft
powered by a subaru car engine. My build is documented at
www.bluespaniel.co.uk and this is my first video diary of the build and
where I am up to. I hope someone finds it usefull.
Verhees Delta, a FAST, tiny homebuilt airplane
It is small, only 50 HP but ...has cruise speed of 220 km/h. Its single
retracting wheel gives the idea it is tricky on the ground, but it is not.
Also stable in the air.
Uses 13 liters/h at cruise speed. Has tank of 50 liters. So ...ideal to
Very rare rectangular flying wing!, German style rc plane. flies like a bird. great glider too
please visit my new store: http://www.avlisogeid.com for my latest super
cheap(even high quality) KIT
...i started for making a very nice and super-light wing for something like
a funfly 3d plane with with my homemade hot wire foam cutter, then i was
messing around and found a youtube channel where a guy was flying a
rectangular tailless glyder, so i decided to try a similar design with my
wing adding a motor.
the plane that resulted was an incredible lightweight and very rare flying
wing. i call it "el aleman" (the German) due to the German channel that
inspired me. i made a 45 min continuous flight with a single 1000 3s lipo
battery using the motor to reach altitude and then turning it off to stay
gliding. incredible!. I know this must be called "plank", but...

Pipistrel Sinus Wing Strength Test
This is a wing test for the Pipistrel Sinus aircraft. The wing is secured
for approximately half its length and forces applied until the wings fails.
If you watch the video you can see that the wing root moves more than 2 m

X-48B BWB Team Completes Phase 1 Test Flights
EDWARDS, Calif. -- A team led by NASA and The Boeing Company has completed
the first phase of flight tests on the subscale X-48B blended wing body
aircraft at the agency's Dryden Flight Research Center in Edwards, Calif.
The remotely piloted, 500-pound airplane with the silhouette resembling a
manta ray also called a hybrid wing body -- is a tool of NASA's new
Environmentally Responsible Aviation, or ERA, Project, which aims to
develop the technology needed to create a quieter, cleaner, and more
fuel-efficient airplane for the future.
A flying test bed such as the X-48B enables NASA to assess and validate the
key technologies. The recently concluded flight tests ascertained the
handling and flying qualities of such an aircraft at speeds typical of
landings and takeoffs.
"This project is a huge success," said Fay Collier, manager of the ERA
Project in NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate. "Bottom line:
the team has proven the ability to fly tailless aircraft to the edge of the
low-speed envelope safely."
Until recently, Collier was principal investigator for NASA's Subsonic
Fixed Wing Project, which established the partnership with Boeing to
conduct initial, fundamental technology development efforts with the X-48B.
The ERA Project he now leads is part of a new research program NASA
initiated to help further mature promising technology before transfer to
The team completed the 80th and last flight of the project's first phase on
March 19, 2010, almost three years after the X-48B's first flight on July
In the mid-2000s, NASA identified low-speed flight controls as a
development challenge for aircraft such as the hybrid wing body. This
challenge, and the challenge of building a non-circular, pressurized
fuselage structure, have been the initial focuses of research since then.
The ultimate goal is to develop technology for an environmentally friendly
aircraft that makes less noise, burns less fuel, and emits less noxious Exhaust.
