I am loving my Willow more and more - I've had it for about 7 months now. From the start it has had impeccable manners, and beautiful frontside aerobatic performance, better roll rate than any plane I've flown, of its size. As time goes on I am more impressed. I've moved the CG back and it snaps turns hard now. I have also flown it at our ridiculously small local coastal cliff which is generally considered "foamies only". The Willow is in its element, making great use of the small zone, unlike other big planes I've flown there which have stayed up, but not with any style. The Willow can strut its stuff in a tight spot. But I'm a DS nut, so the first time I flew the Willow I had it DSing in minutes and I have to say that I, and others I've given the sticks to, agree that it's the best tracking F3F moldie we've DS'ed, easy.

I did this video of a fun day out last weekend ... it's very long (sorry) but it's a fun watch and has several sessions of the Willow flying and DSing in there.
