I built this one RES. I will get another and build it REAF. I could not find any wood that I would change. I will however cut out those circles in the tail feathers as I made the first one a lot tail heavy. In retrospect I wanted the plane to be " straight out of the box " type build and couldnt possibly know the outcome but wanted to be fair for everyone in the review. Even with the added nose weight I got 105 yards out of a hand throw standing in the end zone and a couple of quick steps and a hard throw slightly up, Leveled her off and slid half way through the other end zone. The only other plane Ive accomplished this with is the Victory RES light and thats a bagged and glass slipper. This girl has a lot of potential. Oh yeah, I did sneak carbon tape in the spars, you wont see it in the pictures but it is there.

PS. Dont tell anyone about the carbon fiber tape thing. Our little secret!
I stand corrected. My son said I ran to about the 15 yard line and landed at the other end of the field for a yeild of 85 yards.
