Default Horton Ho229 V3 flying Wing

HI.

I have just started building a Horton Ho 229 V3 flying wing. 82" wingspan.

Does anyone out there know whether it is possible to build a Ho229 V3 which will take off from the ground rather than hand launching.

Hmmm... well, I had landing gear on my 13 foot wing. So, anything is possible, you just have to engineer it for landing gear is all.

you have any pictures of this wing? I dont think I have seen one before. is it a kit?
