Continuing from post #347.....

Well I suppose most guessed or figured out that I finished the JW60.

Came out SWEET! My best foam build to date!

Andrew Palmer got 169mph with it on it's test flight at Tekapo, moving to second on the NZ Foam list. I flew it on mode 1 (opposite mode for me) same flight to 151mph.

A few days later we were at Sugarloaf in a Northerly and I put it on mode 2 and took second place from Andrew to 176mph. 2mph away from Joe Wurts at 178mph with his Reaper.

It was cruising at that speed. Felt like a mouldie!

I am currently finishing up the Reaper, single spar version, for another local guy. Fuse is fnished bar a fin, and wing is strapped. Just have to finish covering the wing and bag the elevons and fin.

The PW51 60" foamie has servos installed and fuselage shaped. Making battery pack for it now and will cover it soon. Also figuring out how best to reinforce the fuse and mount the fin so far back.

Nothing much else in terms of foam progress
