I was lucky to be asked to build a JW with an experimental Peter Wick airfoil (don't know which one).
Turned out pretty nice. It took a bit more dialing in of the CG but I managed to get a 206 over Thanksgiving week up at Weldon.

I built an acro DS Bee I call the Killer Bee (original huh?)
40oz. 3 layers of strapping tape, sub TE spar, 5 cell battery, 4-40 pushrods, servos moved out a little. Clocked her at 139 out at Weldon for an airframe record.

Update: Recorded a 165 at Weldon last Wednesday. Very happy with the performance but at those speeds I found myself running out of elevator due to flex. I will try something else on the next one.
