Awesome R/C Delta Wing flyer, dubbed The Towel, you can make in a few hours out of Dow insulation blue board, an R/C rig, and model plane parts. They’ve even put together a parts bundle of all the mechanics and radio for under $100.

    Very cool!
    Am I missing something though? The only plans I found were the two photos of the whiteboard dimensions. I saw nothing about how to affix the tail, the motor, prop, etc… Wishes there were more details on the build. :(
    Thanks for posting though, might be fun to experiment without plans.
