I wanted to see if I could use a split elevon and some serious mixing to use a split elevon as an airbrake for my flying wing. The Raptor 100 is light and pretty tough, a perfect test platform! Lets try it.
Split the elevons in 2/5 and 3/5 lengths (to compensate for the leverage on the outer wing), added two more servos and some serious mixing on my 9x...
I'm planning on using something similar on my larger, heavier Raptor 140B and new Raptor 140C. These two airplanes are much heavier and suffer from a very long glide ratio and high speed stall, meaning a very long approach.
Have you tried this before? Anything I could to make it better?
