David,
I have about an hour on Esser's X2 last year in Lodi, Italian F3J Eurotour.
Having flown with Esser on our team, I would consider taking a Standard Explorer with me to the worlds. The X2 will not float with a standard Explorer in dead air. Also consider a 3.8 which is Primos and Essers choice, the span thing again.You can compensate by launching higher,ie longer tow in questionable conditions. It was another windfest in Dupnitsa and poor Esser got killed in the last round when he could not get his X2 heavier than 2.4 kilos in admittably tough conditions. I picked up his model in round 6 and and spun around and said your kidding right??? Esser said in his polite manner Abi I am so sorry I cannot make this model heavier. I just flew in the group before at 3 kilos which is a full load of Tungsten in my Prestige. There was nothing We could do to survive this round. I felt very bad for Esser he has emerged as the top Explorer pilot in F3J Eurotour.
