Here is a way to tighten up z bend linkage. Put a small piece of heat shrink at the bend. Shrink it. When you put the linkage in place the heat shrink keeps things nice and tight. No more sloppy loose linkage!

Here are some of my newest planes. 2 flying wings and 2 park jets. The small park jet flew pretty poorly and the larger one gets maidened tomorrow. Would post more info but my health has been poor lately.

Here are 2 vids of the wings. I used a Keel underneath to stabilize both planes out. It worked EXCELLENT. Easy to hold onto for launches and protects the prop on landings.

Latest 2 planes. The little park jet flew great but was under powered for my taste. The wing was a total failure. Cannot seem to get an Armin flying wing to fly right.

Maidened my EMP Armin today. After a minor cg set back she was up in the air. Flies excellent. Lands as slow as my EMP Delta and flies as fast and smooth as my park-jets. Plans are down below as well as a video.
