Hey Guys,

If you have never flown a flying wing, you are missing a unique flying experience.

Back in the late 80's, I was the first to manufacture and sell a combat wing called the Gremlin.

I still have one that I converted to electric (I'll be posting a build thread very soon) and it is a blast to fly.

Flying wings might lack the thrill of 3D but they have other benefits. For one, they track like they are on rails. Second, they can go super fast yet slow down to a crawl - they do not stall. Third, to the casual observer, they appear to be a handfull to fly. However, they are docile and make you look good. Fourth, they handle wind extremely well and appear not to be affected by it. When nobody else is flying due to high winds, you will be.

That's my 2 cents worth...
