    I guess I am feeling bad for you guys for what's currently available in the Hotwire cut wing market, plus I am working to dial in some future products to mold

    Woulde be nice to have a Miniwing Z2... like 700mm for racing.. deep profile so you have a lot of crash resistants.. carbon fiber curves for crashs and a lot of speed should be possible =)

    I think about somthing like the Hornet Miniwing..

    Yes I have some 27 to 30 inch designs in my head.
    The hornet has a lot of sweep and deep chord. This makes for a wing that rolls out when pulling hard turns.
    It will CG easy but its handling is wonky.
    They seem to always roll like a barrel and not so axial.

    Do you have one , how does it fly??
    I have made wings like this and these are things I have found, I am anal about handling.

    I know what you mean, but I have a Firmcore 51, a 37 and now a 32...

    and they fly like this 51 hybrid in Nick's vid



    But I totally agree, the current FPV wings on the market have a lot to be desired in the way of flight envelope, dutch roll and wag..We have combated them all.

    It's all about R&D and finding engineer style elite FPV pilots who can interpret feel and behavior back to design and revise and rinse and repeat. Took them years to get those results working at this scale. If your looking for a new design, you should hit them up, talk resources..it would be cool to unleash these.

    I would like a 40" or so size to take video with. Stability and flight time over speed. I know the size effects stability, but I like to take it on mtb trips and film the various locations. I was waiting for the Mini Drak, but if you are cutting something that has these flight characteristics, I am in.

    Yes.. i have one, and i must say for Racing it flys like a dream... it is prefectly stable doing some hard turns.. and you can fly on a track thats extrem small... like trees with 2-3m distance... i had a bonsai as well... it is bit faster i would say but not as stable during slow turns (it stalls)

    The Hornet is bether... problem is .. straight flying it starts wabbling after some times .. the faster you go the worse it get.. so i thing you have to give the plane some center "winglets" ... like a FX61-Phantom or a Z3,

    The Body it seltf is perfect.. very good for some componants... if i would build it my selfe.. i would make the hornet 600-700mm wide... and 2 carbon-centerplates instead of wood like it is now.. to winglets or one stabalizer in the middle and it would be the best racer i think!

    Slow Turns, but also good speed,... more crash resistantc than any other!
