Hi Guys

The model arrived in two days at my door step. Luckily nothing was broken during the transport. I ordered mine in Italy from G - fly.

Here are some pictures right after unpacking.

Hey, they changed the stripe layout! Looks great. It will serve well. Follow Pierres build log on Planet Soaring, he tells it how it is.

Really Glad you guys are realising the Potential of the Willow ,

Ian worked very hard to get these models to a respectable standard , As you know they are a very capable F3F plane , and i gotta say a great sport flying model , I have 1 o f the Original Beta's . and i am extremely happy with it ,

Also its the fastest official recorded willow so far in the UK (poss the World), with a 38.33 on the Bwlch ( which was my first sub 40)
So if you could put up your official times , that are under race conditions i would appreciate it .

BobbyR - Pink Willow (1 min 15 sec)



Hope you all enjoy it as much as i am , just a note aswell , I had mine floating in next to nothing yesterday , even the weasel was struggling . but found a few thermals and had a great fly in sod all wind .
Fantastic Plane , and a fantastic Price . Whats not to like

Bob

p.s also took this Video you may like ,

Hi Warren
You can have either colour scheme- here are the 5 available

I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys thing of the way they fly. After Seeing Warren's Vid I was flying off the cliffs today- I passed the sticks to a mate so I have pictures I've put up on the WIllow Blog.
