Talk about laugh out loud . I nearly spat my cup of tea out. Ha ha. I'm guessing in the frenzy of packing them the same morning I went away I must have left the that one out . They are separately wrapped in bubble wrap , so I'm only guessing it got caught up in the leftover wrapping that I binned. so anyone looking for a nice purple tail , it's in Gold Coast land fill now
Talk about giving a guy the keys to a Ferrari and on inspection it has no tyres on it.

Sorry guys , new tail in the mail ha ha
Shouldda just told him he had the new and exclusive Nurflugel version...

Hard to tell from photos - but the purple is metallic and so are the dark grey swoops on the bottom of the other...

Tim, I'm thinking of a build capable of 300mph+ . Are you game?
Sounds like a rhetorical question to me!

Is an order of 3 the best way to go for shipping to the US?

2 , 3 , 4 are all around the same money $72.60au was there shipment

I'm doing a longer tail for fast DS which I have almost finished the plug I just thing it will benefit a little more stability so it can go trough the rough stuff easier.
We are hovering around 200mph and get tossed out of the grove as you hit bumps. Such a small plane goes in and out of the holes instead of going through them.
We never designed it for DS ! BUT it does it so well and it so much fun it's impossible not to ha ha , well for us Ds junkies anyway.
I 100% positive it would do 250mph easy in some good average weldon air , nice smooth stuff. On a massive day 300 aerodynamically would be possible , BUT flying one at that speed is another thing
I've already got them built for 300 capable so that's easy if you want it

Still waiting for mine though...

That's what I wanted to hear.
I will see if any of the Weldon folks are interested in a group buy.

I intend to get Bruce to wring one out and with him I need to plan for at least 100mph faster than my best estimate.

This Gizmo will not die. It was the second prototype out of the tooling board molds which was uesed to make the plugs for the Gizmo.
It has been crashed on to roads through fences trees had mid airs and has been put in many times DS' ing . It has had three sets of servos (thay can't take the punishment of my flying) and two tales.
The last time DS'ing it went in over 100mph and finley broke the tip of the wing, the wings have been cracked for some time I keep filling them up with CA when thay open up but this time the wing opened right up it was a esey fix.

It's good to know these are resilient to the elements...

Funny you should post Kevin - I just copied the Windburner horns for my Gizmo last night (well james did all the cutting, I just traced). Tim supplied carbon horns but I was worried about how close-in I could get my servo arms - and I've too-often ended up with elevator rates at like 20% for max throw. So I'm using as much mechanical advantage as I can here. I drilled two holes in the horns in-case I want to go crazy.

I promised myself I wouldn't use my "just slap it together" approach this time. Happy with the results so far.

Does anyone have any feedback on the 8mm thick KST 245's in gizlites ? I like their low weight, but thinking they wouldn't survive regular DS'ing...

I haven't used those yet , but I'm sure they will be great. I'm running HS65mg in mine as I had a lot of them laying around and I haven't stripped one yet even with my fast DS arrivals

I can vouch for the DS113 in a gizlite as Paul run them in his. Super strong and crazy fast. He also runs the Ds115 in his gizmo.
