Flight testing continues

More flights on the Perfection today, this time on an FAI winch and mono. Plane is fast up the line. Currently running ~9mm camber for launch, with the hook almost all the way back. Rotates well and pulls hard, then switching to the recommended 3+mm of reflex for the bucket and zoom produces great results. Even short tows into a bit of wind are impressive.

Standard "run" reflex setting is about 1.5mm, thermal camber about 2.5mm. It likes a lot of aileron/rudder mix in thermal mode.

I think CG is ~113mm...will measure it and the throws sometime soon, and post them here.
