VST (Very Short Tailless)


VST (Very Short Tailess) was designed for ‘snappy’ aerobatics using a 3S electric motor set

Full Description

Dereck Woodward reckons that tailplanes can be done without. Thus was born ‘VST’ or ‘Very Short Tailless’. For Dereck ‘tailplane avoidance’ involves a symmetrical wing section with elevons wider than regular ailerons and a 16% CG position. Fully aerobatic, VST spans 36 inches and uses a 950 kV motor and 3-cell LiPo
