Rogallo Wing

During lunch break, I joined a flying session to try the Rogallo wing of a club mate, Zhen. This rogallo wing is homemade and especially designed for aerial photography and Video:


The camcorder here is the GO PRO HD, an excellent Full HD camcorder that provides crisp video with plenty of details. The Rogallo is very easy to pilot, can take off very shortly, can fly very very slow, is pretty stable. The only drawback is that when you slow down too much then you loose all the agility which is allready not high.

More pictures can be found here.

Anyway, this is very funny to fly, and an excellent planform for aerial shots. I will consider building one :) !

As soon as Zhen is publishing the video clip we did today, I will share it with you !
