Congratulations, Jon!

Not surprised about your speed, only your plane - when did you acquire it?

Top job!

You made it look effortless, Jon, much more to come.

What was the wind direction & speed?

Nice job Jonathan! Glad to see it all come together. Looked like fairly low stress flying...?

So were you using the carbon or steel joiners? What was the windspeed? Snapflap or no?
3.0" CG? Good landing?

Congrats on pushing the UK record up. I won't be surprised to read about a speed over 400 in the UK soon...

I'll fill in if I may.
Steel joiners, 40mph wind speed,

Weather it was low stress or not, he made it look like a walk in the park!
There is loads more to come as man and model get better acquainted!

Thanks mate

Your help during the build was invaluable, thank you

As William said, steel joiners, 40 mph wind + snapflap. The snapflap needs dialling in. I only dsíed for a few minutes, I know I could have flown faster but I was happy with the speed for its second ds flight.

CG was set to 3.2Ē+/- I havenít had enough airtime to play with it. I have only clocked approx 30 minutes flight time so far but Iím looking forward to more.

Landing was okay I think...

Kinetic 130" (2 min 40 sec)
