    OpenRC Swift - 3D Printed Flying Wing

    We've all seen a ton of 3D printed RC vehicles lately, as well as many unique quadcopters and hexacopters. However, one mane has created something rather unique, a 3D printed flying wing, which has a wingspan of 1 meter wide yet only weighs 650 kg. The Flying Wing is still a work in progress but so far it is looking really good. Read and see more about this at:

    Being a balsa modeler myself I've often thought about printing a "balsa" skeleton to be covered with heat shrink and used as a more durable alternative to wood. That looks pretty cool, I'll have to check out the article and see if it flies.
