Soft-DS with my back swept flying wing "Mimares"
For me, a back swept flying wing is the kind of airframe that is most comfortable to fly in the DS. Unfortunately the form tends to flutter at high speeds.
Mimares is an experimental aircraft made of wooden ribs and carbon fiber tube spars. Of course the achievable speed with this very light design is not fast, it is made for a little fun at the backside in poor conditions.
What is the DS speed record for planes made of wooden ribs and film covering?

Regards,

Uwe.

Ian posted this video on YouTube of a cheap Durafly racer modded cheaply for slope and DS. He really likes this plane.

Ian, what site is that? You have incredible hills over there. But lots of rocks!
