#####About:#####
The Klingberg Wing is probably one of the best flying wings for R/C there is, It was designed by the brilliant Rol Klingberg and was kitted by FutureFlight many years ago.

Have a look at the plans:
https://aerofred.com/details.php?image_id=99527

This is a smaller version of the 2 mater span KW, sized to 1.3 meter, fully printable on 200mm by 200mm by 180mm volume 3d printers.

#####Specs:#####
Span: 1240mm
Print weight:320g
Area 19,2 dm2

#####Recommended Gear:#####
3s1800 or 3s 2200 or 4s 1300
28mm outrunner or 32mm outrunner
5 grams servos
Corona digital MG 5 dollar servos from HK

######At 620 grams the wing loading is 32,2 g/dm2.######

All Up Weight as a glider 400 grams?? I haven´t tested that yet.
All Up Weight with motor and 3s 2200 Battery less than 600 grams

I´m including in this listing all the STL files, 5 sections per wing panel plus hatch, servo covers and hatch covers.

The KW was a glider and could have a pusher motor, they used a .10 cox I think, we will use an electric 28mm or 32mm diameter.

#####Notes:#####
At this time I´m releasing a slope glider version that has a gear pocket where a 3s 2200mA/h battery can be fit, soon I´ll be releasing a pusher motor pod that will be glued on top of the wing as can be seen in the print screens. You can start printing before the pod is out because it will be made to glue on the wing skin as seen in the pictures.

I have not flown this wing but it was made over the original plan, the airfoils are the same, the washout, the angles, all the same as the original, only 1,3meter instead of 2 meter span.

I´m also including in this listing factory files so you can print tune the settings to your printer and Gcode files for a 200X200X180 mm direct drive machine, will work on an original Prusa or any similar machine.

###The C.G. is from 54% to 62% of the chord length from the leading edge###

#####To do:#####
Skid
Maybe a tricycle landing gear

#####Ordering Prints:#####
I´ll be offering prints of this wing for anyone interested, will add that listing to the site in the next few days as possible.

#####Launching this Wing#####

This catapult seems interesting:

The hook has that strange rectangular shape because the point closer to the front is at the begining of the c.g. interval and the point closer to the back is a little after the c.g interval. The idea is to trim or fill it according to needs. I confess I don´t know much about bungee launching, never did it. So I came up with this solution. Will it work? I guess you guys will find out...

#####I hope you like this printable flying wing, one of my favourite FW of all time.#####
