I have another video in the works on the Ventus. Unfortunately I suffered a major crash not long after I shot the video last Spring. So, I am now flying the FMS ASW-28, which I also love.

Hi Jackson, sorry about the crash. She was a fine looking bird.
I have looked at the ASW28 a few times. Are you happy with it? I heard it was a little more docile, with normal wings, no this razor sharp stuff like the Ventus.
In an effort to make it more scale like, they made the wings too skinny. A slightly thicker wing profile would have made a huge difference, maybe with a touch more wing chord too and thinner trailing edges. This square cut trailing edge finish is not good, it creates extra drag that is so not necessary on this ship.
Regards,
