You guys should revisit this project, and actually make the drone airdrop burritos. And have it do so through GPS, returning to its start position to land.

I can't get my head around how this is designed like it is. flat bottom foil, lumpy LE, as soon as it gets into a couple of km/h of wind, or you put decent power on it, it will have no pitch stability (just like the arrow/versa) what's wrong with a nice smooth symmetrical foil? It's just as easy to make as the origami wing, and flys so much better.

I am tempered to build this then make a deployable parachute out of the large cargo space for soft and easy landings. You could just it a switch on the transmitter and it would come down slowly.

I have a Wild Wing I built a few years ago it had a brushed motor and just would''t fly except into the ground, after a few modifications and a brush-less motor it fly's like and sounds like a JET.

One wonder if that little plane can handle a payload like that BURRITO!!! I mean it looks delicious, but in real life that plane will be making like 125 Mph's (+) to keep all that weight airborne...

Hello! I am really crazy about acquiring a FT Spear, but I am not sure if it will fly "neat" and stable with my Emax 2812 motors CF2812, 1534Kv. The thing is, this engine seems to be a little too fast for a propeller bigger than 7x6, hence, my worries. I know I can fry it's coils or blow up the ESC if I try something not signed up by their manufacturer. My powerhouse is a lipo 2200mah 3s 11.1v 20c, weight 188 grams. Witch I am not sure if it is approved by you guys for this wing. Thanks in advance.

What does it cost to build something like this?

It can depend wildly... if you have parts laying around and build it from plans, then dirt cheap... $50 or less even. I bought the quick build kit for about $35, the power pack (motor, esc, servos, prop, etc.) for $65, already had a receiver and radio. It took me an evening to build it, and it flew well even with a major mistake, great after I fixed it! Now it's waiting for a paint job and more flights.

Is there any way you could release the both the laser cutting plans, and the scratch build plans? The new Scratch build plans are awesome! But they make CAMing planes for a CNC or laser cutter a whole lot harder!

Do they? The PDFs should be layered vector graphics like before. You can disable layers you don't like and use the remaining ones in your CAM software.

***EXTREMELY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ*** Dear Flight Test. I please recommend that you make a video to rally to action the lastest Prototype of European Drone (Rc Model) laws that may be enforced by the EASA and ultimately, the EU as a whole. The new and 'improved' regulations are: >No flying over an altitude of 50m (Enforced with mandatory electronic devices.) >Max Model Weight 250 GRAMS!!! >Max distance away from user 100M!!!! >Max speed, 54KM (30ish MPH)!!! As you, Flite test harbour a large community of Rc modelers, I think it would be not only necessary for you to bring a awareness, as these rules could (and will) spread to other parts of the world. These rules will almost indefinitely end the Rc Modeling community in almost every single aspect. There are online petitions, and contacts that members in the hobby can use to help alter, or remove these regulations that WILL eventually be adopted if nothing is done. Please consider the request of me, and many others.

Hi Josh, Didn't know you were answering questions in the comments! Did you guys try to use a XiaoMi Yi? Heard this camera shouldn't be bad at all and only costs ~90 $. With some firmware modding, you can get 4k video out of that little thing. You think it would be worth the money?

Just a (bit of a noob) thought... Why not make the wing-tips more symmetrical so that it could take off from standing on its tail/back-end making it easier for take off when out flying by ones self? I'm kinda surprised this hasn't been done with any of the wing designs yet, or would it not fly as good? Would love to buy a kit with this kind of solo functionality ;)
