I'm surprised nobody seems to know anything about this wing. It appears to be very similar to the Mini Swift Wing.

It does look like a mini. The CF spars are an excellent idea.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

It looks like a nice durable wing, I think it will be great for a beginner to advance their skills with, I like the fact that the wing tips extend above and below the wing, that helps to make the wing track like if its on rails if i did not already have a wing, i would buy this one because its built very well.



BTW: the mini swift wing is a slow flying wing, designed to be flown park/ slow and indoors with large vertical wing fins that do not extend under the wing, the tuffwing is designed for speed, and to be flown outdoors at speeds up to 70 mph.

The Mini SWIFT - Airbrush is a radio controlled park/slow & INDOOR micro-flyer with excellent flight

I've read some great feedback on this wing and it's family on RCG.

There is ALWAYS room for some levity in your brevity!

I've done a search on RCG and can't find anything about it. Could you provide some links?

Here is the thread on RCG for the tuffwing:

some more great 'tough' wings:

IMHO, the lighter wing with less pieces is going to be the most resilient and likely to come back from an impact with no damage.

The wing that is stiff and smooth, say with carbon reinforcement is going to be faster and more precise to fly. I love that my SwiftII is super flexible for bouncing off of the ground and other aircraft (no reinforcement)

edit: just found some more comparisons: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1400623
