Race Quads have shown what is possible with FPV. They have raised the bar for freestyle and race flying and planes never really caught up.
The MiniRaceWing is designed to change that. It is fast, agile, easy to transport and it can take a beating. The MiniRaceWing gives you an exceptionally carefree and exciting flying experience.
Its like a continuous FPV dive down a mountain, or like a quad freestyle session low to the ground and around obstacles.
It usually takes a few crashes to get accustomed to how crash resistant the MiniRaceWing is.
The possibilities are limitless. Take it with you on holiday. Keep it in your car for a short after work flight. Test your own wing designs. Fly races with your friends. Or fly freestyle like we do.
Fly wherever you want.
Make every spot a playground.
The carbon fuselage is the heart of the MiniRaceWing. It protects all your FPV and RC gear and makes the MiniRaceWing very versatile.
The specially designed wing mounts make the wings basically crash proof. Instead of ripping them apart, the MiniRaceWing releases the wings preventing them from getting damaged. They also make the MiniRaceWing extremely easy to disassemble and transport. It is both a parting point for disassembly and a high impact release to reduce stress on the wings during crashes.
Airfoil and wing shape are optimized for the best flying experience. With the MiniRaceWing there is no more need to put components inside the wing itself, like in traditional flying wings. This results in an outstandingly large speed envelope. Effortless high speed flying, tight turning and easy landing are all combined in one wing.
Launching the MiniRaceWing is easy and safe. The launch itself is hassle free, only a light toss is needed. After an exciting flight the landing is a piece of cake. Slow it down and land it in front of your feet, almost like a trainer.
Testing your own wing designs was never this easy. Just add two spars to your wing, attach it to the MiniRaceWing fuselage and you are good to go. Your friends' DIY wing performs differently? Just attach them to your fuselage and test them for yourself.
Adjusting the COG is a matter of seconds. No extra weight needed. Move the wings for a rough adjustment and move the motor for a fine adjustment. Change the thrust angle to you liking with a few turns of the screwdriver.
There are mounts for almost every FPV camera (e.g. board cameras and HS1177 style cameras).
What's FPV without getting that juicy HD video to share your epic flights. The MiniRaceWing has a place to firmly mount your HD camera.

We would love to offer ready to fly kits! But we are a small startup and we want to do things right. Sometimes, to do things right, you have to focus on the most important things. The most important thing for us is to get the MiniRaceWings out there. After we achieved this we will add to our portfolio.
For the servos you can choose every micro servo with at least 2kg force. (e.G. TowerPro SG92R or Hitec Servo HS-70MG)
We recommend for 3S:
- Batteries: 2200mAh
- DYS 2208 2600KV 5,5" x 5,5" Prop ESC: min. 30A
- T-Motor F80 2500KV 5,5" x 5,5" Prop ESC: min. 30A
or for 4S setup:
- Batteries: 1600mAh
- T-Motor F80 2500KV 5,5" x 5,5" Prop ESC: min. 50A
- T-Motor F80 2200KV 5,5" x 5,5" Prop ESC: min. 40A
- DYS 2212-8 1450KV 6” x 6” Prop ESC: min. 40A
To manufacture the wings and plastic parts we have to order a whole batch. We've covered the cost of the development and tests for the MiniRaceWing, but we can't manufacture the MiniRaceWing without your support. You can help to bring the MiniRaceWing to life!
There is no "early-bird" pledge level because the MiniRaceWing already comes at a special Kickstarter discount.
We are prompt with addressing any questions or concerns, and value all backer input.
Our backers have a special place in our hearts. That means you'll get your MiniRaceWing before traditional distribution begins, and we will always be completely honest and transparent with you.
Risks and challenges
The MiniRaceWing is fully developed and has been flying since Fall 2015. In other words there is no risk that this wing will not fly or perform as intended.
Milling Carbon Fiber always comes with a risk. There is a lot that can go wrong. We milled carbon fiber even before the MiniRaceWing and have encountered and resolved many of the things that can go wrong.
Ordering parts from another manufacturer has another set of risks. You are not in charge of the product and can't react as fast. We have talked to manufactures and have selected two with a lot of experience in their respective field (foam wings, injection molded plastic parts). It also helps, that their offices are near us which makes problem solving much easier and faster.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
