This is my attempt to design and build my own flying wing.
I wanted to build a small, portable size wing that would be easy and fun to fly. I used XFLR5 analysis tool to verify my vision (I’m not an expert user).
The wing came out very light and also very wobbly. I used packing tape and 3x1mm carbon fiber spars to stiffen it, but it fluttered like crazy at certain AoA.
Apart from flutter, the wing flew pretty well. It glided well and it was stable. I could hover it at 50% power. Just what I was trying to achieve.

Lot 9 Southwind Bay’s list of distinctive and desirable features is long and well deserved. Located just a few miles from town makes it’s location by car or boat as convenient as it can be. Leaving the amazing view you’ll have from this lot, however, is not going to be easy. This desirable point lot features just under an acre of land (.90), over 219′ or premium waterfront, hardwood trees, nearly perfect gentle slope, and sweeping views. The often preferred southern exposure allows for great sunlight all day without the negative of direct sun and the 7-8 beautiful islands scattered across the 270 degree view is a rare bonus! You’ll love the sparkle off the water as the sun rises and then again as the sun sets…what a perfect way to start and finish your day at the lake! The slope and shape of the lot are an architect and custom home builder’s dream as they will have a much larger than average building envelope to work with allowing for a nearly limitless design possibilities. You’ll love the commanding open water views and appreciate the underwhelming amount of boat traffic as the majority of boats travel on the southern side of the islands, truly the best of all worlds for a point lot. Southwind Bay, a beautiful Crescent development, is mature and boasts many well built waterfront homes in the M-M+ range. The opportunity to purchase a lot of this quality on Lake Keowee is quickly disappearing so get yours before it is gone!

Renderings and animation of a new 70,000 square-foot Bascom Palmer August Medical Eye Institute (BPAMEI) designed by Gresham, Smith and Partners.
