I have some 3" tint tube and some 3/16" thick 4.5" wide plywood. I need to buy some 38mm tubing. But, the bigger issue is that this 'Gig will be heavy and will need a recovery system. And the I49 and I59 are both plugged so electronics will be required.
Thus, my questions so far are:
- Can either my GWiz altimeter timer or Xavien timer work under spinning conditions?
- Will there be enough Y-axis acceleration to activate these devices?
- Will an extended main tube affect the Whirlygig's flight?
Update: Thought I'd post a re-photo of my Whirlygig-24 in flight. You can read more about it on EMRR.
