New Product
Warhead 60

Hi guys

Just picked up the new warhead 60 cnc MDF wing plugs. Now the new journey begins.....had some great help from people around me. It's been a fun with the warhead 30 , as always just wanted to go bigger , better , and faster
I carnt thank Peter wick enough...
He has been so helpful through this , spending his time , and sharing his knowledge , to bring my dream of making A fast DS plank..
Peter designed 3 airfoils for it . Should be VERY quick...very low drag. Designed to go 250+ and should handle and carve like a PW51....with an AR of 10.1 , and a flying weight of up to 4kg (145oz).
Should make for a very fast , and fun plank.......
I hope you can join me on my quest.......

TIM

Very cool Tim. Love the look of it. I can't wait to see one in the flesh. If its built anything like the WH30 it will be a winner.
The pinch if dihedral should help it lock in as well.

I think I got the last one.

I think Tims molds are feeling the pinch after having a few really solid wings taken out of them and he is going to spend his time dedicated to the 60'.

I feel bad for taking his last one.
He wiped his last one out and 3 days after I collected mine they had the best winds in Queensland. He set a new pb with his NYX (198mph) but I know he was left wondering how fast a WH30 would go today.

I fondled the molds this arvo of the 60 and it looks great, forward sweep and thick airfoil thats 25% slippery (er) than a PW98 !!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see the maiden..... Big, slippery, and fast. The opposite of Tims nether region.

Yes the airfoils are great.......compared to the pw98 it's very similar....but at CL=0 it has a lot less drag. So should be very good in a straight line....and still bang a turn...so it should like paper clip style circuits...

Lookin good Tim.

Great idea to do the vids. Its always nice watching the progress of a new plane being built, especially something as promising as the Warhead 60.

Keep it up dude!

Yeah I agree Eric....thats always a problem with heavily loaded planks.

Any brakes in mind for this beast Tim, or are you going to leave it without.

That fin could possibly lend itself to being split for brakes?

At 4kg, not only will it come in hot, but it will have lots of momentum as well, resulting in damage on hard landings.

Of course, you can always plough it into a soft-ish bush to stop it.
