Light Weight Aerial Vehicle




Introduction: Light Weight Aerial Vehicle

Swept-back wing glider

A swept wing is a wing that angles either backward or, occasionally, forward, from its root rather than in a straight sideways direction. Wing sweep has the effect of delaying the shock waves and accompanying aerodynamic drag rise caused by fluid compressibility near the speed of sound, improving performance. Swept wings are therefore often used on jet aircraft designed to fly at these speeds. Swept wings are also sometimes used for other reasons, such as structural convenience or visibility.

    That's a neat toy. :) It looks like it may be a little front heavy but it would be easy to trim.
