    Standard MiniRaceWing - Fly fast, Stay low

    Hi Everyone,
    Sorry for writing in English I'm from Germany.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update:

    We have started the production of the MiniRaceWing!

    http://www.flybot.de/en

    The first MiniRaceWings will be shipped end of May.

    It is available at a special preorder price of 129,- EUR only for a short time (incl. taxes. Everyone outside the EU will safe 19% tax). The regular price will be 149,- EUR

    We are also able to offer you a power kit for the MiniRaceWing now. Replacement wings are available and we will add more replacement parts soon.

    Head over to our shop and order your MiniRaceWing today!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------



    A friend of mine and myself are avid FPV pilots. We have developed a fast, agile and easy to transport FPV plane with a twist: It is crash resistant and extremely fun to fly.





    Here is how it works:
    Your FPV and RC gear is inside a carbon fuselage. If you crash and the impact would rip the wings apart, they detach(!) without any damage. You can put everything back together in seconds and fly again


    The Wings are designed for fast agile flying. We don't need a thick airfoil and we don't need cutouts for the motor. The Airfoil of the MiniRaceWing is thin and efficient


    We are trying to produce the MiniRaceWing.
    If you are interested, take a look at our Kickstarter page for more information and flying/crashing videos.

    I would love to hear your feedback!

    I'll be glad to answer any of your questions.




    Kind Regards,

    Markus

    Nice project! :-D

    Two things...
    - It vobbles (like TBS Caipirinha). How are the fins formed and angled (like FireFLY6 have for example to minmize induced resistance or are they straight?). Or why not closer to the center? How are the wingtips formed? You have a perfect platform made of a material that can have advanced wingtips and get rid of as much vobble as possible.
    - The cheap FPV-camera is well protected, the full HD-camera is very exposed.

    Uhhhh that one hurt

    It really isn't that bad, you have to take into account that we fly right in the turbulences form the trees and do extreme turns. Take the MiniRaceWing above the tree tops and fly it like a normal flying wing and you won't notice any vobbles.

    We experimented with winglet position a lot. If you move them closer to the center the lever gets shorter which reduces their performance. Move them to tip and they have negative effects on tip stall. With the Kickstarter we want to produce the MiniRaceWing with nicely molded foam wings. And of course this wings will have nicely shaped wingtips.

    - We had to make a compromise between accessibility and protection. Even in this position the HD camera is protected. But you have to make sure that it is fixed to the fuselage really well! Usually the carbon fuselage contacts first and as long as the HD camera doesn't fly away it doesn't take damage.

    I think the idea of a race wing is great. Is it available today as a kit or what is the plan and how to order?

    They are linking to a crowd funding page, meaning the product isnt out in stores since they need economical backing with manufacturing.

    You can "preorder" a kit for $149 + shipping ($15), and expect to get it shipped to you late/after april 2017.
    BUT.. if the crowdfunding fails, you wont receive any product, but of course no money will be charged either.

    I would recommend reading here if you are interested in kickstarting the MiniRaceWing but dont know how crowdfunding works: https://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/kickstarter+basics

    At the same time, backers must understand that Kickstarter is not a store. When you back a project, you’re helping to create something new — not ordering something that already exists. There’s a chance something could happen that prevents the creator from being able to finish the project as promised. If a creator is absolutely unable to complete the project and fulfill rewards, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to a satisfying conclusion for their backers.

    Thanks Whylex, that's exactly how it works

    FliteTest is flying the MiniRaceWing!

    This is how the MiniRaceWing flies if you miss a vital carbon plate on the wing mount I hope they fly it again with the carbon plate installed

    We updated the Kickstarter page. You can now read about setups we have tested. We hope this helps everyone to find their perfect setup.

    It's only two days till our Kickstarter for the MiniRaceWing ends.

    We want to use this opportunity to thank all our supporters and ask anyone who is considering backing us to do so.

    Even if we don't reach our goal, by showing your interest in the MiniRaceWing you can help us tremendously! The MiniRaceWing is a new concept and it was hard to guess how people would receive it.

    Showing your support by backing us, you help us to plan beyond the Kickstarter.

    We have been asked many times what happens if the Kickstarter fails. And we are happy to tell you that of course we have planned for both cases.

    So If you are thinking about getting a MiniRaceWing please consider showing your support now, by backing.

    Just a reminder, because we got asked a lot, how Kickstarter works. The money you back is not transferred until the goal is actually reached. It is only if we reach our Kickstarter goal that your account is charged and the money is transferred to us. If the Kickstarter doesn't reach its goal your account will not be charged.


    Regards,
    Markus

    The Kickstarter has ended. Our goal was ambitious and in the end we didn't reach it.
    But that doesn't mean the end of the MiniRaceWing, there is never only one way.


    We have pre-planned for both Kickstarter outcomes. However, we will need a few days to select the best of our other options and check if all dependencies are still in place.


    We will announce any news regarding the MiniRaceWing through our newsletter.
    If you aren't already signed up please do so.

    We like to thank all our supporters and all the people who expressed their wish to buy a MiniRaceWing after the Kickstarter.


    You can contact us trough Facebook or send us an email at contact@miniracewing.com if you want to send us feedback or have a questions.

    We have started the production of the MiniRaceWing!


    The MiniRaceWing provides an exceptionally exciting but also carefree flying experience.
    It is the first crash
    resistant plane that is not only easy to transport but also fast and agile and just plain fun to fly.

    - Fast
    - Extremely agile
    - Large speed envelope
    - Special developed wing mount acts as crash release and lets you dissemble the wings in seconds
    - All the electronics is safe inside the carbon fiber fuselage
