More Wings

I had the day off work today and got back to working on my wing.  I've got the wing put together and the tail, and also have the structure of the catamaran put together.  I still need to add floatation, to make the hulls, and then the remote controlling stuff.  Its pretty cool though!
I took some pictures and some video of it in operation.  In the video, you will see me turn the tail (which is very easy to turn since its so small) and that little turning motion causes the whole wing to turn with the wind.  When I get the remote control system in, a small motor will turn the tail, and that is how I will control the power of the wing.  Then I'll have another one that turns a rudder and Presto!  I'm sailing!
